Hi, firstly THANKS for all the effort gone into what appears to be a great
vehicle for Open Access Journals. We are a small group of meteorologists

snagged, likely due to my own relative inexperience with server installs.

I'm attempting to install the OJS on an Ipowerweb shared freeBSD server
(info included below error). All mySQL and php stuff is current. I've

Thanks in advance for any help you give ...
