Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

I see others have had same problem, I am not developer, do I have to get the server admin to fix the code?

Here is the error message:

As the instructions in the installer indicate, you must enter a trailing slash for the "files path" setting. That is, "/home/jqs_tamago/journal_files/" instead of this "/home/jqs_tamago/journal_files"

You can fix your existing OJS install by running an SQL statement on your database like:
Code: Select all
UPDATE tbljournalconfig SET chFilePath = '/home/jqs_tamago/journal_files/';
