Dear @fcogonz,

Has this issue started after an upgrade to OJS 3.3.0-14? If so, what OJS version have you upgraded from?

Best regards,

Hi @fcogonz,

It looks like you included your email credentials in your post above. I’ve removed them, but please change your password ASAP, especially if you share those credentials with anything else! Please be careful not to share credentials in the public forum.

Thanks Josh and Alec

For your responses. Regarding the installation, it is not an update, it is a new installation from version since in our institution we are going to start using OJS and I am implementing the platform.

And what I need to resolve is this detail that the attached files are not sent.

With reference to the credentials, they are proof of an email that is not in use, I used it thinking that the problem would be because the email does not have an identification credential and that is why the attached files are not sent, thanks for the advice .

Some information that you have to review to solve the problem, whether it is the configuration of PHP, Apache2 or any file that you consider may be the solution.

Greetings and thanks again for your responses.
