Installation of OCS on Fedora Core4

Postby apsc » Wed Mar 08, 2006 12:30 am

I am currently installing both OJS and OCS onto my server. Having some hiccups here and there due to my unfamilarity on LINUX ground but slowly gettin the hang of it also starting to like the sys environment.

I have read Matthew's entry warning on Fedora Core 4's incapability to install OCS due to PHP 5.0

I am wondering if there is another way or anyway to get the program installed? Maybe patches are out or there are ways to route over the problem.

Also if OCS really clashes with FC4 any recommendations on other OS that do not support PHP 5.0 and yet capable of support OCS's installation?

Hi apsc,

We've got a user working on updating OCS so it'll run on PHP 5.x; unfortunately nothing is available at the moment. In the meantime, while I'm not personally familiar with FC4, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a set of packages available to allow you to run PHP 4.x on FC4.
