Installing OJS 3.2.1-2 on RedHat 8 problems

RedHat 8.2 x86_63
PHP 7.2.24

  • is this a supported configuration?

I have a lot of diffrent problems when trying to install OJS. Sometimes the web installer works, sometimes its just blank and i have to run tools/install.php as user apache.
Sometimes i have the option to download plugins, sometimes its missing.
I only have an “Administrative” menu to the left… correct?
Sometimes when adding users to a journal i cant select roles…

OJS is installed under /var/www/html/ojs. The webserver is the owner of ojs with sufficient i think. Permissions on cache and public is correct.

It feels like my combo of installed software is not supported by OJS, is that so?
I have tried to debug ojs and apache but cat find the problem.

Any ideas?

Hi @mattias.olsson,

Your system should be compatible with OJS.

When you see a blank page, or encounter an error, check your PHP error log to see if there is more information there.

Some Red Hat systems are SELinux-enabled, in which case there may be further permissions needing to be granted beyond the file/directory ownership; search the forum for SELinux for details.
