[OJS 3] Upgrade issues

Hello all, @asmecher and anyone who can help!

I’m creating a new topic as I’m not sure if it’s all related to the CustomLocale plugin issue.

We’ve tested 4 different installations of OJS and all have the same problem.
We are not able to change site admin settings.
Testing OJS 3 in a local environment, with Laragon and clean installation (Windows laptop) I have no problems.
Whenever we try to upgrade our OJS 2, some areas work, but the site admin content cannot be changed at all. The only time I believe it worked was once, but I’m not sure if I tested then changing content in the admin/site configuration. It crashed when I enabled plugins in the admin interface and after that, all hell broke loose.

A few log entries from one of our test, which are pretty much the same in all tests.

Hi @ramon,

Settings changes that refuse to stick are most commonly caused by permissions problems in the cache directory. I’d suggest double-checking that. If that doesn’t resolve the problem, maybe focus in on one specific change that you’re unable to make and describe it in detail.

Hello all, @asmecher,

We’ve had a lot of issues upgrading to OJS 3 and we’ll like to share the current satus.

Our virtual machine that’s hosting OJS 3 was created with Ubuntu 20 which, we discovered during the upgrade process, has many problems with MySQL and MariaDB versions.

Also, upgrading directly to OJS 3.2 creates the problem of not being able to modify site settings, such as title, translations and descriptions, for the site wide configuration settings.

These were tested in multiple environments, not just the hosting server.

We currently upgrade to 3.1 and it worked (quick test showed I could change site title and translations).

We are now progressing to upgrade to 3.2 to check if problems are gone!

Hello all,

There are issues upgrading from 3.1 to 3.2.
Within 3.1 there are apparently no issues.
Moving to 3.2, the problem of being unable to save site administration settings persists.

We will upgrade to 3.1.2-4 and see if it’s stable enough to keep, until we find a permanent solution to our upgrade problems to 3.2.
