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.

Site URL Configuration Change

We have a situation where we have two separate journals just getting started on 2.0. We also have one journal on 1.1.9. Based on a number of conversations we thought we would end up doing unique customizations for a few of the journals which initially made us believe separate installs for each would be the wise choice. This has since changed.

The journal farthest down the road in using OJS is AERJ-SIA. See the URL below.
Here's what we'd like to do and want to know if is possible:

Modify the URL from:


The part of the URL we want to change is called the site repository within the Site Administration function which would effect other folders such as the files_dir.

These changes appear possible in the config.inc.php. file but it's not clear if they'll render the site inoperable. Can we do so without having to do a completely new installation and data migration?

Thanks for your assistance,
