First of all, I want to thank you for the OjS cms platform.
I have few questions related to installation after I finished to read the ‘Documentation’.
in the documentation is specified the following:
“Install OJS so that the files directory is NOT a subdirectory of the OJS installation and cannot be accessed directly via the web server.”
Can be stored outside the public_html folder, somewhere in the root server? or it means that I can put the OJS files in a ‘obfuscated’ folder with restricted access (e.g. domain.com/my/obfuscated/folder/) and install in the root public_html folder (e.g. domain.com)
can I import the username and passwords (SHA1 hashing) from other platform/database and assign them to be default users. If it is possible, can you tell me in which table are stored?
