We have a server with OJS 184.108.40.206 running and it has serious
problems. We want to migrate to OJS3x.
We tried to upgrade to 3.x according to the instructions.
All the upgrade attempts failed.
So we put a clean install of 220.127.116.11 and populated it with everything
that is in the OJS2 installation.
Both versions are running on the same server.
The OJS2 installation runs quickly - response times are quite
The OJS3 installation intermittently stalls for anything between 20
seconds and several minutes. Particularly, it stalls if one clicks,
for example, on ‘Website’ and then clicks ‘Workflow’ soon after.
There seems to be no pattern to when it will stall but after it has
stalled once, selecting other items on the left-hand panel also stalls
Server logs and PHP logs don’t show any errors for the OJS3
installation although they show many errors for the OJS2
In most cases the system eventually come back from stall and has
gone to the correct web page.
The delays are too numerous and too long and the site is unworkable so
we cannot migrate to OJS3 and are having to continue with using the
OJS2 installation and finding workarounds for the its problems.
For readers to the site - i.e. people using the Archives page to view
articles - the response times reliably fast.
We’ve spent months trying to get there and have had very little
success addressing this. Can anyone help? Desperate.
