Please add any screenshots, logs or other information we can use to investigate this problem.
i have wasted almost 1 month (from 19-aug to 15-sep.) on installing ojs, but failed. so sad about this. anyone can help?
PHP scripts are running on your server as the “apache” user and group, and you are performing file operations as user id/group id 1000 (not sure why that doesn’t have a username showing). This is why the user and group digits of the permission value aren’t effective when set to 7 – the ownership and group do not match. The best solution would be for your server to run scripts in a setuid environment, if that’s possible. Otherwise, it’s best to have your files and cache directories also owned by apache, so that 777 permissions are not required.
This is more about server configuration and UNIX file permissions than OJS, so you might find guidance e.g. on Stack Overflow.
