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.

I am working on a new OJS system. I was told by the CIO that I can access the source code by typing "SUDO." I also was told that I need to download SUDO. My goal is to reach the source code on their server. The CIO said that all he did was download the OJS platform and doesn't know anything else about the system except that I need to get to SUDO. 1) can you tell me how to access SUDO, and 2) what it does?

Hi mmatisoff,

I fear you've probably been thrown in over your head. "sudo" is a standard *NIX tool, not part of any of our software, though it's commonly used to administer a *NIX system. It's described here. I suspect your CIO is going to have to walk you through this; his recommendation that you download sudo is less than helpful.
