Hello MuratSahin,

Did you upgrade to OJS 2.4.3? If so, the upgrade should have removed the "timed views" plugin; if it didn't, you'll need to remove it yourself. If you have installed other plugins not distributed in OJS itself, those may be causing the problem if they aren't compatible with OJS 2.4.3. If you turn on the show_stacktrace option in config.inc.php, the error message should provide more details.
