Dear All,

Apologize if this topic already discussion before.
I'm new comer in installing OJS. I Have Old Ojs (sorry i dont know the version, its been used since 2011). because we have to migration all organization application to single server, including the OJS.

OJS 2.4.3 successfully installed in new server ( using apache n php 5.4 ), i try to migration the data from old OJS to the new one. but there are some different table n field between them.
in old version has article_file.type (varchar 40), the new one has article_file.file_stage (bigint 20).
the error appear because the new one try to find value in article_file.file_stage

please give me suggestion Master.

Big thanks

Hi Najma,

To migrate between two OJS versions you will need to follow the steps outlined in the docs/UPGRADE file that came with your OJS download. There is a process that you will need to go through in order to upgrade your database structure to the version you are now running. Simply copying the database from the old version to the new one will not work.
