Describe the issue or problem
After an upgrade from OJS2 to OJS3, there are no files in
files_dir. I suppose that they need to be restored from the backup (also according to https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca/upgrading-ojs-2-to-3/en/upgrade-planning#do-an-inventory-of-your-journal).
The problem with that is that both the directory structure and file names are different between the two versions.
For example, the file that was residing in
should (see additional information) now be named
This is also true about the PDFs displayed on the journal site. They are now located in the directory
submission\proof while previously on
public, and the filenames are also changed accordingly.
Files that have been uploaded manually (from the UI) after the upgrade have the proper names and are in the correct directories.
It’s obvious to me that something went wrong during the upgrade, however I did not perform it myself and no upgrade logs have been kept (to the best of my knowledge), in order to see what exactly happened.
I think that the best course of action would be to rename the files from the backup and copy them to the proper directories, however I do not entirely understand the correlation between the new and old filenames/paths in order to create a script.
Could you help with this or offer any other suggestions in case my explanation is wrong?
What application are you using?
OJS 22.214.171.124 (upgrade from 126.96.36.199)
The reason I was tipped off about this was an error in php log:
FileApiHandler: File C:/xampp/files/journals/3//articles/477/submission/review/477-1-1512-1-4-20230103.docx does not exist or is not readable!
It seems that the application is trying to reach a filename that it generates (or does it read it from somewhere?), however the file obviously is not there. Some insight (which I don’t have) about how the API works would be helpful.
Unfortunately I haven’t managed to reproduce it, so I don’t know which exact action caused it.
