I am completely new in this world, so be patient with me
I’m trying to install mySQL from the installer (mysql-installer-community-188.8.131.52), but it doesn’t recognise the Visual Studio 2017 that I’m already have installed in my pc. So, I can’t move forward and complete the OJS installation (ojs-3.1.1-4).
Many thanks in advance!
OJS doesn’t require Visual Studio for installation. For Windows for development purposes I’d recommend to use XAMPP for installation and Notepad++/Sublime Text for making changes into the code. For production you just need apache with PHP module and MySQL/MariaDB database, this is a default configuration that almost all hosting providers support for share hosting.
