Changing folder / path of OJS

Postby pureenergycentre » Mon Feb 18, 2013 10:16 am

Hello all

This may be very well documented somewhere, but I am not finding the right keywords to identify the appropriate answer. So here is my problem:

I have the OJS installed in a folder and it is working.

Now I want to move all that is in that folder to a more meaningful folder under the same webhost system.

If I do so, what are the parameters that I need to configure to allow the OJS to work.

Thank you.

After many days scratching about this issue, the solution is very basic. If you have the same problem, here is the solution. Well it did work for me:

Upload your config.inc.php file and find the following line

; The canonical URL to the OJS installation (excluding the trailing slash)
base_url = "http://domain.com/XYZ"

and replace it with

base_url = "http://domain.com/UWX"

where XYZ is your old folder

and UXW is the folder where you have moved all of your OJS files.

Thanks.
