Patch from to a more secure version?


I’m am looking for a way to secure our still running installation to a version in the 2.3 or 2.4 version range. I could not find any patch files on this page

Are they still available in a legacy archive somewhere?

Many thanks,

Can you do upgrade to higher version?

Hi @b_continent,

All historical patches are in our download area, but not linked. For example, you can get a patch to OJS 2.4.8-3 from – and adjusting that URL you can get others. However, I’d suggest against using a patch to accomplish this as patches don’t include binaries like images. I’d suggest downloading the .tar.gz of the version you want to upgrade to (I’d suggest 2.4.8-3 for now, until you’re ready to tackle a 3.x upgrade) and following the “full package” upgrade instructions in its documentation.
