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.

Recovering from Hard Disc Crash

Postby elmborg » Thu Aug 25, 2005 7:53 am

I'm running a test version of ojs (not a live journal). After creating a mock journal and trying out several media types and workflow functions to make sure ojs worked as needed, my hard disc failed.

I still have the old disc, and I think I can retrieve data off it. Is there a way to recreate the journal's state before the disc failed? If I copy the entire contents of the ojs directory to the new ojs directory and then copy the journal_files directory to a new journal_files directory with the same path, will that do it, or do I also need to copy the mysql tables? Will that even do it? Would I be better off just starting over?

I'm running Fedora Core 4 LInux. I'm not sure what version of ojs I was running, but it was 1.x. Sorry for the vagueness of the question. I'd taken a break from working on the project, so my memory isn't all that fresh. ojs had been working as we needed, and our intention was to push forward with implementing it in this new academic year.

Thanks for any help,
Jim Elmborg
