Php error in ojs

Tags: #<Tag:0x007f6c66c18340>



I recently updated my ojs to version When I try to submit an article, it is showing me “php error” when uploading the corresponding file. I appreciate any collaboration to solve this problem.

The php error_log file say “[Tue Jul 11 17:59:03.912190 2017] [:error] [pid 9785] [client] PHP Warning: Illegal string offset ‘es_ES’ in /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/core/ on line 133”


Hi @fforerogarcia,

Can you show a screenshot of the page showing the “php error”? It sounds to me like a fatal (500) error, but the log entry you showed is only a warning. (Is there anything else relevant in the log?)

Thanks for your reply. The attached file contains the error message.


I was able to correct the error. It was solved by giving write permissions to the “files” directory. (error 500)
Thanks for your help.
