I am currently using OJS 3.1.1 and I have decided to subsitutute the current folders available on the server with the new folders available in OJS 3.1.2-1 (.tar.gz) (19 MB). Therefore I need to take care before substituting the folders and the files. So I have the following questions:
Is it possible?
Doesn’t that create any bugs in performance?
What should I do to stop any possible crashes?
Are the databases in OJS 3.1.1 and OJS 3.1.2-1 the same?
Thank you primozs. Can I simply substitute the folders from OJS 3.2.1 to my current server folders (OJS 3.1.1) and the files instead of upgrading as you previously recommended. Are the databases the same in OJS 3.1.1 and OJS 3.2.1?
If I upgrade the OJS from 3.1.1 to 3.1.2 the way recommended in https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/UPGRADE , (1) will the database also be substituted?, (2) will the information in previous database transferred to the new database?
