I would like to upgrade ojs-2.4.4-1, I am following the document docs/UPGRADE.

I have installed a fresh ojs-2.4.4-1, applied the suggested patches, changed the file config.inc.php
to set up files_dir and the database connection.

So I am now at Section "Upgrading the OJS database".
I have set "installed = Off" and opened my OJS site in Firefox.

Here I have the following problems:
- Most of the texts in the GUI do not seem to be translated, e.g. '##installer.ojsInstallation##', and so on.
There is '## ... ##' everywhere.
- The documentation says I should click on the "Upgrade" link, but there is no such link. Also, all kinds
of configuration options that are already set up in config.inc.php are not displayed on the installation page.

Can someone give me a hint as to what has gone wrong / what I may be doing wrong?

Thank you in advance.
Giorgio

Hi Giorgio,

Can you post your question in the OJS technical support forum? Please include which language you're using.

Hi Alec,

thank you for your feedback,

I have solved my open problems:
- The missing translation were due to a misconfiguration of the language in config.inc.php (I wanted Italian but had
entered the wrong code).
- With the translations in place I was able to find the 'Upgrade' link.

I am now trying to perform the upgrade.

For future question I will post in the other forum as you suggested

Best regards
Giorgio
