OJS upgrade Table entry missing

Recently, I have tried to update our OJS-2.3.7 to the 2.4.4.1 version. (We don't own any web servers, so the webpage is located on an IT company's server as a paid service.) I have no access to PHP CLI, and logs, except the usual ones (phpmyadmin, ftp... ).

So I choose clean installation and database upgrade. All data has been backed up, the new files are copied to the location they should be. I asked the IT company to run the command (only a few commands are free of charge), but the update failed, see below.

Could you please someone help me? Should I upload the old database, create the entry and start over the update process? Thank you very much in advance.

RSS Feed

Dear PKP

Is it possible to edit the RSS feed plugin, so it also will be possible to point it at news instead of latest issue?

Kind regards,

How to add links to conference titles on home/landing page

I need help on how to make all conference titles listed on the main home page to be clickable . The aim is to link some of them to external sites that are not hosted within our main site. I have tried editing files in the templates folder but am not so conversant with the system well enough.

Any assistance will be highly appreciated.
