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.

adding new admin to the journal

Postby remzigulsun » Tue Dec 13, 2005 1:15 am

Hello,
I looged in my account and deleted the editors and now I can't do anything as the administrator of the journal. When I login with my username and password I am seen just as a user not as the administrator. :( I can't make any changes to the journal. How can I manage the journal as the administrator again? If somebody can help me with this I will be glad.

P.S: This forum is great. I get very useful guidance through this forum. I thank to all those who take their time to respond.

Hi Remzi,

The user who performs all the administration tasks for a journal is the Journal Manager; I suspect you've un-enrolled yourself from this role.

To grant yourself this role again, you'll have to go into the database and execute the following statements:
  • Determine your user ID:
    Code: Select all
    SELECT user_id FROM users WHERE userename = 'myUsername';
  • Determine your journal's ID:
    Code: Select all
    SELECT journal_id FROM journals WHERE path = 'myJournalPath';
  • Insert a new role with the above values:
    Code: Select all
    INSERT INTO roles (journal_id, user_id, role_id) VALUES (journal_id_here, user_id_here, 16);


The next release of OJS will allow Site Administrators to access Journal Management functions; accessing the database directly won't be required.

Is there a latest version of the script on this website?

Postby remzigulsun » Tue Dec 13, 2005 12:13 pm

Hello,
I reinstalled the script and solved the admin problem. Yet because it is an old version of the ojs script and it is likely to create problems I want to use the latest version. The script I uploaded is not the latest one. It is OJS 1.1.10 (.tar.gz). Previously I had uploaded and set up the latest version (OJS 2.0.2-1 (.tar.gz) twice but had error messages on my screen. The problem is: I upload the latest version of the script but when it comes to setting up I see that it is not the latest version. :cry: The unzipped folder's name is also OJS 2.0.2-1 (.tar.gz) but the content is not the latest version. I don't want to upload the latest version again until I am sure that it is really the latest version. Can you check the content of the latest version published on your website?

Thanks in advance.
