Hi kennymatthew,

How did you install the plugin? (i.e. by uploading it into OJS, by unpacking the tarball yourself, etc.)

Hi Kenny,

Before that, though, how did you install the plugin's code? Did you upload it to the OJS installation via the web interface, or unpack the .tar.gz file yourself, or something else?

Hi Kenny,

That plugin isn't built in, so someone must've installed it from somewhere.

Hi,

I am pretty sure I didn't install it. The options was there since I installed OJS . OK now Is there anyway to re-install it or something? what can be done to fix it?

Hi Kenny,

The iThenticate plugin is only currently available here. Check to see if there's an entry for it in the "versions" table in your database; if not, then it was probably installed just by unpacking the tarball into the installation directory. Try instead to install it via the Journal Manager's "Plugins" page and the required entry will be created.

Hi,

There is no entry in the versions table. So I tried to upload " plagiarism-1.0.tar.gz " at the page " Home > User > Journal Management > Plugin Management > Install A New Plugin" but I keep on getting the
error
Errors occurred processing this form:
The uploaded plugin archive does not contain a folder that corresponds to the plugin name.

Hi kennymatthew,

Hmm, looking at the plugin archive it seems not to be compatible with the plugin installer in the web interface. Another way of getting the version information installed: try running the upgrade script (tools/upgrade.php upgrade). Please back up your database before you do this, just in case e.g. a previous problem left your installation in an inconsistent state.

Hi Kenny,

The path to your PHP script looks incorrect to me. (Also, you're using the CGI PHP executable; there's probably another that's intended for command-line use. This may not be a problem but better to use that one.) The error messages you see, apart from the last one, relate to problems in your PHP configuration.

Hi,

Thanks, I have been trying to ask godaddy support which is the best way to execute php scripts but they still havent given me an answer and they are just beating around the bush. Will try asking around.
