Forum rules
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.

Trouble upgrading from to

Current version (November 1, 2005 - 11:58 AM)
Latest version: (February 3, 2006)

I'm downloading this file:
Code: Select all

and running:
Code: Select all
patch -p1 < ojs-2.1_to_2.1.0-1.patch

in the root ojs directory.
I get this:
Code: Select all
can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -urN ojs-2.1/cache/t_compile/%%00^002^0025FB04%%groupForm.tpl.php ojs-2.1.0-1/cache/t_compile/%%00^002^0025FB04%%groupForm.tpl.php
|--- ojs-2.1/cache/t_compile/%%00^002^0025FB04%%groupForm.tpl.php       2006-02-02 15:21:19.000000000 -0800
|+++ ojs-2.1.0-1/cache/t_compile/%%00^002^0025FB04%%groupForm.tpl.php   2006-02-03 13:26:37.000000000 -0800
File to patch:

Line 4 of the file doesn't seem to yield any good clues.
Btw the root ojs directory is also the root directory for the webserver (/var/www/localhost/htdocs.

What stupid mistake am I making this time? :-P

Hi Ari,

You're running a pre-release version of OJS 2.1.0, not the official release, so the patch-based upgrade isn't going to work; I'd suggest upgrading by overwriting your existing installation from the distribution package. See the instructions at http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=691, which are for an FTP-based upgrade, but apply just as well when using SSH. Make sure you back everything up before proceeding.
