problem with directories for journal

Postby jasonnolan » Thu Jan 04, 2007 3:48 pm

When we set up our 2.x system, we had a 1.1.9 version running on the same server /journal/ for 1.1.9 and /journal2007 for 2.x. I set it up fine, imported from old to new. Then copied /journal/ to /journal.old/ and /journal2007 to journal. No problem, except we noticed that some of the urls stuck to the old system for example If you're on this page:
<> and
click on "register," you get a page not found alert for
<>; ditto if
you click on "log in"; the missing page is

I did a temporary fix of ln -s journal journal2007 to allow users to register, but this still leads to confusion.

Where can i go to check that there aren't legacy old urls? And or which files would have this problem so I can fix them manually?

Hi Jason,

There are a few places to check:
  • In
  • In your Journal Setup pages if you've entered any URLs manually, typically on page 5.
Otherwise, OJS should start using the new address without any changes.
