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.

Export User Data Corrupted

Postby michaelgeerin » Mon Jan 07, 2013 6:18 pm


Trying to export user data from here http://asage.org/index.php/ASAGE/manage ... portPlugin -- trying a number of different applications to open the downloaded XML document, but nothing I try produces anything except a brick wall of code (with the user data hidden in there, but among so much code trash that it's unusable). What application should I use?

I know the files have been corrupted because I see the Cialis/Viagra code at the top of the document. Basically, the site was hacked by a Viagra/Cialis bot, then patched up by an IT guy who fixed the site on the surface, but obviously the files have been affected and I'm still having all sorts of problems.

Just trying to rescue the user data at the moment so that I don't lose my user base while struggling with the site.
