I am trying to use OSJ for Scholar Journal which is a free journal for young phD students and scholars. When I try to install the latest version of OJS, I am getting the error “The directory specified for uploaded files does not exist or is not writable”
My server is a dedicated server with Linux Centos 6 and Cpanel/WHM. My website is scholar-journal.com and the ojs directory is below public_html and the files directory is just below the level of public_html. I put the file path as /ojs/files for the file directory at http://scholar-journal.com/ojs/files. I have given chmod 777 for the files directory.
Is this a software bug or am I doing something wrong. (I am 100% sure that the file permissions have been set correctly)
