What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

unfortunately, today my database was crashed. I see message but I do not know how to repair it. Any help would be very appreciate.

File: ...ojs/classes/core/Application.inc.php line 29
Function: PKPApplication->PKPApplication()

File: ...ojs/lib/pkp/includes/bootstrap.inc.php line 58
Function: Application->Application()

File: ...ojs/index.php line 61
Function: ...ojs/lib/pkp/includes/bootstrap.inc.p...")

Kind regards,

Hi Adam,

I think parts of that error message are missing -- but regardless, it sounds like your MySQL server needs attention. If you're not running your own server, I'd suggest asking your system administrator to check.
