How to apply a CVS patch

Postby ata_gp » Mon Feb 19, 2007 12:53 pm


I'm trying to apply a CVS patch referring to "Allow manual re-ordering of published issues / correction of published date" (you can see here")

I have not access to my data base (SQL), so I would like to apply it manually. Is it possible? uploading this file via FTP into my OJS files?

I find very interesting this patch...

Thanks it advance,

Hi Rafael,

There's some information on applying patches at If you don't have SSH or telnet access to your server, you'll need to download the files to your local computer, apply the patch using the patch tool, and re-upload them.

This patch also includes a schema change; the relevant snippet of the patch is;r2=1.129. You'll have to create a new MySQL table manually according to this description.
