At University of Bordeaux we currently hosted 5 journals on OJS 220.127.116.11. We plan to host more journals in the next months and we are wondering if there is system requirements and technical advices when the number of journal increases ?
The technical characteristics of our current server are as follows:
- OS: Debian
- CPU : 4 processors
- RAM : 6 Go
- Disk : 60 Go
- Softwares: apache 2.4.10, php 5.6, MySQL 5.5
- Journal storage (for 5 journals) in /var/files directory: 11 Go
Should we increase the RAM of our server? The storage capacity ? Do we need to set up a load balancing system, etc ?
Some of our future journals will have some heavy PDF to upload and some videos to view (We are actually asking how we can embed videos in OJS but it will be the subject of another topic).
I read in a post that @ctgraham worked on a single install with over 40 journals.
Could you give us your technical characteristics for this single install ?
Did you notice some critical issues when you increased the number of your journals in this single install ?
Thanks in advance for your answer.
