I am currently migrating old OJS and OMP installations to a new server. Everything worked fine until yesterday, when I reimported a more recent database dump.
- OMP is still fine.
- OJS suddenly loads forever when trying to navigate to a journal overview, an issue or the article views, without any error messages. The backend dashboard works fine.
One weird observation: If I deliberately mess up the files/ directory path (either changing the parameter in my config or by moving the directory), suddenly the journal overview and issue view load again, but of course PDFs and images are not found. One difference between both systems that might be relevant is the fact that the OJS installation still uses the legacy
public directory for some older files.
Any suggestions/ideas how this could be happening? Is it a caching issue?
