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.

upgrade question

I apologize for my newbie-type question here..but...how do you do this?

Alternatively, OJS 2.0.1 and later provide a command-line tool to automatically
download and apply the appropriate patch to upgrade to the latest release. To
use this tool run the following command from your OJS directory:

$ php tools/upgrade.php patch

I have ojs 2.0.1 and want to upgrade to the newest version. How do I run this? Do I go to http://www.mywebsite.com/$ php tools/upgrade.php patch

Hi Kris,

The upgrade tool needs to be run from a secure shell or telnet session; you can't use this upgrade method over the web. If you don't have secure shell or telnet access, you'll need to follow another of the upgrade methods.
