I’ve recently discovered OJS and i’m playing around with it in order to see if i can set up a working journal site.
I’m using 000webhost as a hosting service because it provides PHP and MySQL for free and to install OJS i copied all files contained in the tar file i downloaded to the public_html directory on the ftp, after that i just accessed the 000webhost.com default URL and followed the instructions of the installation.
I wanted to see if anyone else has tried to deploy a OJS site on 000webhost in order to see if there are any do’s and/or dont’s i should be aware of, also to be sure i’m not making any big mistakes to begin with.
I’m far from being an expert in hosting services nor PHP applications so, while everything seems to be working more or less so far, i wanted to double check everything before i build a live site.
Thanks in advance!
PS: I’m also new to this forum so forgive me if this is not the right place for this topic
