Description of issue or problem I’m having:
Deleting a large journal (with ~9k submissions) seems to never complete.
Steps I took leading up to the issue:
Backed up and stood up the multi-journal database into a “dev” instance. Logged in, went to the administrative interface and clicked to “remove” the journal. The modal to confirm popped up and I then clicked “OK” to confirm. The dialog does not disappear and after waiting overnight (just to be sure I wasn’t being impatient), it still had not completed.
What I tried to resolve the issue:
Some of the other journals in the instance properly deleted and the modal box closed and the page refreshed to reflect that the journal had been removed (despite this, I do still see records for those journals in the database still, however, the main record for the database in the journals table is no longer present). I’ve tried waiting longer, but I think that the timeout is being reached. Is there another method other than the GUI that I can use to approach this to split this multi-journal instance into multiple single-journal instances?
Application Version - e.g., OJS 3.1.2:
