OJS installed but it doesn't work

Postby hsandir » Sat Nov 10, 2007 1:20 pm


First, let me say I am a complete beginner in using OJS and MySQL, so forgive me if I ask a stupid question.

I installed OJS.

But now, when I try to launch OJS, I get a error message that "the server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complate your request". This error page's title is "500 Internal Server Error"

Can someone help me with some pointers about what I might have done wrong, and how I might fix it?

Hi hsandir,

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2403 for the likely cause of this problem.
