To install OJS:

1. Extract the OJS archive to the desired location in your web
   documents directory.

2. Make the following files and directories (and their contents)
   writeable (i.e., by changing the owner or permissions with chown or
     * config.inc.php (optional -- if not writable you will be prompted
       to manually overwrite this file during installation)
     * public
     * cache
     * cache/t_cache
     * cache/t_config
     * cache/t_compile
     * cache/_db

3. Create a directory to store uploaded files (submission files, etc.)
   and make this directory writeable. It is recommended that this
   directory be placed in a non-web-accessible location (or otherwise
   protected from direct access, such as via .htaccess rules).
4. Open a web browser to <http://yourdomain.com/path/to/ojs/> and
   follow the on-screen installation instructions.

Hi @munglani,

Your server probably doesn’t support PATH_INFO URLs. Try turning on the disable_path_info option in config.inc.php. Note that this will make URLs uglier.

Hi This is what I am getting now

Do PKP offer any support in installing other than the readme file??

Hi @munglani,

It looks like you’re missing some files. Make sure you unpacked all the files from the .tar.gz archive.
