Changing of server of OJS

i’ve tried to move OJS to another server.

  1. I copied all files from odl to new server.
  2. I’ve made export/import of database.
  3. I’ve changed

It it not work at all.

  • Application Version - OJS 2.4.3

Could you send me some advices what to do?

any news?


Hi @zbigniew

OJS 2.4.3 is a little bit old and your server configuration might not be compatible with that version.

System Requirements

Recommended server requirements:

  • PHP >= 4.2.x (including PHP 5.x); Microsoft IIS requires PHP 5.x
  • MySQL >= 4.1 or PostgreSQL >= 8.0
    (including PostgreSQL 8.x)
  • Apache >= 1.3.2x or >= 2.0.4x or Microsoft IIS 6
  • Operating system: Any OS that supports the above software, including
    Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows

Can we make some checks to understand the origin of the problem?

  1. Could you check which version of PHP is active for your web documents? php 5.x or php 7.x
  2. Could you check which version of sql server is active for your web?
  3. Could you check which version of Apache or Nginx is active for your web documents?
  4. Are there any restrictions on php execution, does php work on safe mode?

Thanks for answer.
I thin the problem is wit version of php. I’ve got 7.4.

Today I’ll make some tests on server with php 5.6
