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.

I have a files directory for a working submission portal that needs to be relocated and renamed. What is the best way to complete this task without losing previous submission data access.

Migration of DATA

You should first backup your data.

Then, you may either update manually the database (through a PHPMYadmin or MySQL Front to connect, or via the MySQL prompt in the server) or re-execute the specific installation step.

If you decide to run the installation step you will need to insert all the data exactly as it was before. I think the password sal is in that form, and if you change it, no one will be able to access the systema again.

You may skip the other steps.
