Thank for your respon
We using the latest version of OJS( 3.3.0-10 ) on both of our OJS. Btw The method for exporting import articles that we use is to use the native XML plugin and for an export-import user, we use this command script on our server: php7.4 tools/importExport.php UserImportExportPlugin export user-journal.xml journal
Here is the detailed view of the article on my old OJS :
Then when I moved articles and users to the new OJS, all the review rounds on articles that had been published or were in the copyediting stage all disappeared.
Then in the article that was moved, Participants such as editors and authors also disappeared.
and also the activity log on the article becomes inaccessible.
Please help me if there is any other method I can use to solve my problem above related to OJS merge.
Thank you for your information, I’m curious, is it possible in OJS 3.3 to do a merge process that loads workflow data on submissions?
related to backup yes i have both databases recoverable, currently i’m doing a test run on my staging server.
Why do we want to migrate from one OJS to another?
Previously our organization had 2 OJS which had different versions( OJS 2 & OJS 3 ), those 2 OJS have been running for more than 2 years. Our organization has a policy of merging those 2 OJS to become a unit in 1 domain, For now we have successfully upgraded both OJS.
But exporting the content comes with the caveat that it does not contain any of the associated workflow data, unfortunately. As noted in the post linked to above, it is on roadmap for future development, but it will likely be some time before it could be developed.
I don’t know the status of this tool, however, as it might not be kept up-to-date - and its not available for OJS 3.
Thanks for clarifying your situation. That’s not uncommon for organizations to host multiple instances of OJS, but merging them into one is not something that is easily done (or really feasible, so far as I know).
