Migration from OJS 1.1.5 to OJS 2.1.1 hangs

Postby okello » Sun Sep 23, 2007 5:27 am

Hallo All,

Now, I installed OJS 2.1.1. I have anumber of subscriptions and issues in my OJS 1.1.5 which I would wish to import into the new OJS 2.1.1 installation. At first, there was an error about db.php not found. In my OJS installation, I don't have include folder that the system mentions in the error message. I have includes/ folder instead. In this includes/ folder, there's no db.php file needed by the migration tool.

Now, i made the include/ directory and copied and renamed config.inc.php to db.php and stored in this new include/ folder.

I then ran the migration tool. The tool hangs immediately. And, there a semicolon at in the page. Does thie semicolon have any special meaning? What could be making the migration to hang.

Help Please. thanks in advance.
