Help with Intallation

Postby medhatter » Sat Oct 26, 2013 5:13 pm

Hi there,

I am installing openJ to host a journal. I have my journal website hosted on another server(but with no database capacity). I want to get a separate server to host OJS. I'm just wondering how would I go about doing so? I'd like to keep the domain consistent for the user, i.e they would still see the same domain on address bar.

Thanks in advance.

Hi medhatter,

OJS will be fairly agnostic to the way it's being served up -- the same considerations will apply as if you were doing virtual hosting, i.e. you might need to change OJS's base_url[...] directives to get it to generate the right URLs (including for CSS URLs and the like), but it generally doesn't care what URL it's requested from. I suggest looking into your existing server's ability to proxy, e.g. using mod_proxy for Apache, in order to permit both your existing website and OJS to coexist under the same URL. We won't be able to help you with configuring mod_proxy here, but can help with the OJS-specific configuration aspects.
