The plugin setting page give me a journal identifier and the link http://pkp-pln.lib.sfu.ca/login, but it needs a login registration with password that I ignore.
You can ignore that link; you do not need to log into that site. We will add some text in the next version of the plugin to clarify that.
The PLN is still in its pilot phase and will be accepting deposits from all journals - including yours - in early February, once we have completed testing with the pilot members. In order to confirm that you have successfully enabled and configured the plugin, click on the ‘status’ link in the PKP PLN Plugin’s entry in the list of Generic Plugins. You should see something similar to the screen snaphot below.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Very odd. After a successful upgrade, you would expect the plugin to be registered in OJS, with an entry appearing in the versions table of the database. What rows do you see with a product of “pln” and a product_type of “plugins.generic”?
What is the version information in your plugins/generic/pln/version.xml?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE version SYSTEM "../../../lib/pkp/dtd/pluginVersion.dtd">

You could download the full package, and just copy the PKP plugin from the package to plugins/generic/pln on its own. Run the update.php script afterwards.
Note, however, that if this one file is out-of-date, others may be as well. I would strongly recommend at least comparing your install to the unmodified download of 2.4.8 so that you can be aware of any and all changes.
I did that according to your instructions and the PKP plugin is there now. After I enabled it and agreed with the terms of service, I clicked the status and the page shows that “The PKP PLN is currently in pilot phase and is only accepting deposits from members of the pilot”. Anything wrong? Or I should wait for the OJS to create deposits automatically and move them into the PLN?
Yes, we’re out of pilot but require that journals be running OJS 2.4.8. As @ctgraham says, once you upgrade to that version, your journal will start making deposits automatically. The network status message is incorrect; I think we can change it on our end between version releases and if so will update it today. I’ll confirm that when I get into the office.
