I’m working on the upgrade of an OJS installation for a client, and have a question about the directory structure of OJS 3.x. I know with 3.x there are a lot of changes to the architecture of OJS, does this include major changes to the directory structure of the product?
My client made an earlier failed attempt to upgrade from 2.4.x to 3.x, and I’m trying to ascertain if the upgrade process created some new directories that aren’t a part of a valid 2.4.x install of OJS.
For example, there is a /documents directory alongside the /files directory, and I’m wondering if this is a part of 3.x as I don’t think it was used by 2.4.x. Can anybody confirm this?
I spent some time looking over the 3.x documentation and was unable to find the directory structure for an install described anywhere. Does this exist, or do I need to gain access to a clean install of OJS 3.x somewhere that I can take a look at.
I’m setting up a copy of the client’s 2.4.x OJS site to work on the upgrade offline from their live site, and this led me to finding some directories on the server that don’t appear to be a part of the 2.4 install. Wondering if they are from the failed 3.x upgrade.
