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.

Urgent: How to upload my website?

I've searched the forum for an answer to my question, but with no luck. So i'm trying this way.
I have prepared the website of our journal using the wamp server. I have bout a hosting and a domain for the journal too, but I don't know how to upload it on the web. The questions are:

1- How can I upload my files?
2- Which files should I transfer?

Hi yousefian,

Have a look at the Backups and Restoring sections of the OxS Quick Reference. Moving to a new server is basically the same as executing the backup procedure on your current server and the restore process on the new server.

Dear Alec Smecher,

Thank you very much for your message. But, as I am not familiar with many things in quick reference, I was unable to do it. Would you please explain every thing step by step?

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Alec Smecher,

I did the following steps:

1= In the www directory of Wamp, I sent the ojs-2.3.6 folder to a zipped folder.

2- I uploaded the zipped file to public_html folder of my website on the web.

3- I extracted the zipped file in public_html.

But the website does not work properly.

Best,
Ahmad

Hi Ahmad,

The "OxS Quick Reference" describes under "Backups":
A full back up of an OJS or OCS installation should include three components:
  • The OJS installation itself. ...
  • The MySQL database. ...
  • The files path. ...
By uploading a zipped copy of the ojs-2.3.6 folder from your local installation, you've done the first one (the OJS installation itself). You'll still need to move your MySQL database and files path. Note that you'll probably also need to correct your file permissions for the new system once you've uploaded everything.
