Installation failure on MampStack

Postby ruse » Thu Aug 29, 2013 9:12 am

I am setting up a trial server for a UK University, and have Bitnami MampStack running on a macbook as the OS and environment, and I am following the README doc for OJS-2.4.2. The tar has been extracted to htdocs, mysql database created and updated, but whenever I point any browser at the folder set up, the browser returns the php text and will not run the script it contains.

I apologise for the daft question, I can see that there is either a simple step overlooked or a local permission setting which is stopping the script running correctly, but I can't find it.

Hi Russell,

My first question would be to ask you and see if the PHP module for Apache has been installed and enabled. It may not have been turned on by default.
