upgrade problem

Postby delong » Wed Feb 08, 2006 12:06 pm

Having some problems upgrading to 2.1.

I tried upgrading using the upgrade.php tool, but it kept failing (I believe my ftp server kept cutting off the connection in mid-patch).

So I uploaded the full 2.1 release, overwriting my old (backed up!) install. Problem is, I turn "installed" to "Off" in config.inc.php but it doesn't redirect to the install/upgrade page. I have OJS set up to redirect to our sole journal, so I thought that might be the problem. I don't have SSH access, and doing it via a cron job would leave the journal sitting buggy for hours. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Currently I have the backup copy up and running.

Hi delong,

It's not possible to run upgrade.php via an FTP connection. Have you tried the procedure described in http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=691?

If you were upgrading from a pre-2.0.2 version of OJS, perhaps the upgrade failed because you were missing the general:base_path parameter in config.inc.php. See the template configuration file supplied with OJS 2.1.0-1. I'd suggest using the new configuration file as a template and moving your old settings into it -- several other options have been added as well.

Sorry if I wasn't clear - yes, I did exactly that procedure. But instead of taking me to the upgrade/install page, it just goes to the normal journal page. I'm upgrading from 2.0.2.1. I'm stumped.

Hi delong,

Have you tried flushing your browser cache and reloading the journal page? If "Installed" isn't set to "On", you should definitely not be seeing your journal's page. Please double-check your configuration file and try again; if you're still having trouble, feel free to send me your specifics at pkp-support@sfu.ca and I'll have a look.

I managed to fix the upgrade. I re-copied the 2.1 files and tried again. It worked this time. Thanks for the assistance!
