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
WE have OJS .2.3.8 and want to patch it to the latest version. The instructions call for TAR but that is not available on a windows platform. Can we use the PHAR command and change the scripts for patching? That brings the question...is it better to host this on a linux platform versus a virtual windows platform? The windows platform works great so far. Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers!

Tar is available for windows -- just google "tar for windows" -- all you have to do is configure config.inc.php with its location. I'm not familiar with phar, but if it's compatible with the same command-line options as tar, you can use it instead.
A windows server should be fine; anecdotally we've heard that it performs a little slower than Linux because of the characteristics of the NTFS filesystem, but unless you're seeing heavy load (and there are lots of other options for optimization that could come before a platform change) you should be fine.
