Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

First of all, we apologize for not answering sooner...

It is difficult to know what exactly went wrong, but here are a couple of things you may check:

1 - User permissions in the server folder (owner must be the same as the apache owner - usually root, or www-data depending on the distribution and permissions - command chown -R 0775 at the root of the system or something like that...)

2 - Check the password salt in the database to see if it is not corrupted

3 - Check server proxy and cache settings. Depending on the server configuration, and if you're on a local network, this may cause this error. Refreshing the window after removing browser cookies, files and history may also work.
