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.

notification email fails

It seems the notification email is not being sent out (all other emails work).
I am not sure where I should start debugging.

I selected "Send this message to the users associated with this journal who have indicated that they wish to receive updates (17357 users)".

After clicking "send" the browser just goes into the "Loading..." state and remains there forever.

Is there any reason why this would fail due to the relatively large number of users?

Where should I start debugging?

Hi Gunther,

This code has been rewritten for OJS 2.2 to indicate progress as it sends messages. In the meantime, the code works, but many servers are configured to prevent PHP scripts from running long enough to send that many messages. Make sure your max_execution_time and max_input_time limits are set extremely high in your server's php.ini configuration file.
