OJS not installing - HTTP Error 500

Hey guys. I installed OJS (latest version) using softaculous at domain.com/ojs. This worked.

I uninstalled and tried to install at domain.com. It installed but when I clicked I get HTTP ERROR 500.

I’ve tried uninstalling and going back to the old directory and it won’t work. What do I do?

Hi @scripto

If you’re getting 500 errors, there are probably detailed errors in your Apache error log. Can you take a look?


I have installed ojs but same problem HTTP error 500 showing how it will be solved please guide me.

Hi @editor_iiarp

Please look in your error logs for detailed PHP error messages and report back.


Issue was fixed after communicating with the hosting company.
