PHP 5.4 upgrade: from OJS 2.2.4 to 2.4.3

Postby nahrizuladib » Sat Jan 18, 2014 7:31 am

hi

i have been procrastinating to upgrade since 2.2.4 because my installation works fine; and suddenly my webhost upgraded to PHP 5.4, and my OJS is not working anymore. i've read the forums, and understood that the safest/best bet would be to upgrade, instead of applying patches.

so my (rather noob, my apologies) question is: would 'upgrading' entails just replacing all the php files? do i have to do anything else? will the mySQL database be upgraded automatically?

thanks

Hi nahrizuladib,

No, you'll also need to upgrade the database. There is a file called UPGRADE included with your OJS installation, in the docs/ directory. It contains the instructions for doing so.

Also, please make backups of both your PHP codebase and your mysql database. That's a long way to upgrade, and you may encounter problems. Having a backup will make it easy to roll back if you need to.
