Display problems after move to Windows 2012 Server

Postby mpatti » Fri May 16, 2014 10:35 am

I am in the process of moving an OJS 2.3.7.0 site from a 32-bit Windows 2003 server running IIS 6, PHP 5.3.11 and MySQL 5.1.48-community to a 64-bit Windows 2012 running IIS8, PHP 5.5.11 and MySQL 5.7.3-m13.

I had no problems getting PHP and MySQL running on the new server, was able to import the OJS database and upload the site files, but when I load the site on the new server, the sidebars and HTML/PDF content are not loading. You can see the difference when comparing the two sites:

Old: http://www.surveypractice.org/index.php ... ue/current
New: http://www2.surveypractice.org/index.ph ... ue/current

On the new server, I've already updated config.inc to point to the new files path (files_dir = "C:/inetpub/wwwroot/files"), and when I go directly to an HTML file, it displays for me:
http://www2.surveypractice.org/files/jo ... -1-PB.html

I'm stumped as to what would be preventing the sidebars and HTML/PDF content from displaying. Is there some configuration setting I'm missing?

An update: I've corrected the problem w/ the HTML and PDF articles (that turned out to be some files that hadn't been uploaded); but the sidebar modules are still not displaying. I'm also finding that certain pages within the admin portal, including /index.php/SurveyPractice/manager/setup are showing up as blank (with nothing in the source view), while other pages, such as /index.php/SurveyPractice/manager/sections, are displaying without problems.

Hi mpatti,

See the FAQ for what do do about blank pages.

I suspect part of the problem might be that you're running an old version of OJS; you might consider upgrading to the most recent stable release.
