I'm sorry, I can't install it! I'm using exactly the same settings for OJS237 without any particular restrictions, but still unable to upgrade or to install cleanly!
It would be great if upgrading was also available in an automatic way, in addition to the manual way. Currently, we have the possibility to check the availability of updates, via the system information page, and if so, we are prompted to download either the new version or the patch. But no choice to update OJS automatically, unfortunately.
I understand that some people may prefer to update manually, but for newbies (like me!), automatic updating would be much appreciated.
I moved all OJS240 files to replace all OJS237, except "config.inc.php", public and files folder, but this didn't work!
I've already downloaded the patch file, but I'm not so familiar with commands line (I'm using windows)!
"""If I copy/paste the patch file in the installed OJS folder, will this upgrade OJS? """
I found this info:
To update by patching, download the appropriate patch file for your current
version of OJS and run the following command from your OJS directory:
- Code: Select all
$ patch -p1 < PATCH_FILE
What is meant by running the command from OJS directory?
(Could this be done from Apache menu or WAMP server?
