Upgrade Problem

Postby smurfy » Wed May 23, 2012 1:10 am

Hi everybody,

I used to work with OJS v2.2.3.0. A little time ago my web server upgraded and so php version upgraded to 5.3.3 as well. After upgrading process, OJS come up with lots of php warning errors. And I was getting such error in "author" page.


That does not allow me to add a new journal as an author.

And finally I decided to upgrade the version of OJS to the latest one. I followed the UPGRADE instructions from the documentation. I uploaded all the files containing latest version and then copied the uploaded files (files_dir defined in config.inc.iphp) directory to new location of OJS installation,and also config.inc.php. But I set the "Installed = Off". After all, I must have upgraded the database,
I click the upgrade link in the page of installation. All the things went successfully, and the message telling the successful completion appeared and also release notes.

But when I was trying to get into a journal page, I am getting the error :
"PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method Journal::getId() in /var/www/html/yeni/lib/pkp/classes/core/PKPApplication.inc.php on line 255"

I am waiting for your help, thanks...
