Hi memcan,

I'm going to guess that you're using a fairly old version of OJS and your site admin recently upgraded PHP. There used to be a class name collision between OJS and newer versions of PHP because PHP started including a class named Locale. The solution is to either upgrade your OJS installation or go back to an older version of PHP.
