I’ve just unpacked ojs-3.0.1 live and was trying to install from scratch via the browser interface. It seems to just hang with ‘loading’ and never presents an error. How long should I wait? Is there something I don’t understand about the information required in the fields?
Create new database?
Not much in the README about this.
I had previous installed ojs-2.* successfully but completely uninstalled it as I have yet to publish a journal.
Check your PHP error log to see if something relevant appears there. It should take 10-30 seconds to install, though we’ve heard that Windows-based installations can take longer. You may have to extend your PHP execution limit in some cases.

Thank you. I’m starting again as I didn’t have much luck last time around. I’ve just extracted the install onto my host and following the install instructions it states to set the following as writable:
config.inc.php (optional – if not writable you will be prompted
to manually overwrite this file during installation)
Does that mean ‘world’ writable or only ‘user’ writable? It’s currently set at ‘user’ read, write and execute.
