Hi

I have made an upgrade to OJS 3.2.1-0 and I have the following error when trying to upgrade the quicksubmit plugin via the web interface:

The log gives:

I get the following error in the browser development tool:

I get similar error when I try to install a plugin from the Plugin Gallery

Is should not be a permission issue since i have ran
$ chown -v -R apache:apache plugins/
in the root directory.

Could it be an apache issue or is it a bug?

It might also be related to my import issue:

Can anyone help me?

Hi @eddoff,

There’s a small bug in the error message construction, which you can fix with this change: pkp/pkp-lib#5869 Fix error message construction · pkp/pkp-lib@d1528ab · GitHub

This won’t correct the plugin installation problem, but will give you a proper error message that’ll provide guidance.

Thanks @asmecher!

I have made the changes in the code and now I get the following error in the pink box:

“Could not move plugin to desination!”

I have the following permissions set up:

I hope you can help me!

Hi again!
An update:

  • In OJS 3.1.1-4 on the same server there is no error.
  • I also tested to change the Apache settings so that the settings agreed with the 3.1.1-4 version, but I still have the same problem in 3.2.1-0

Thanks for any help!

Hi @eddoff,

What permissions and ownership do you see on the files in the cache/ directory? (Necessary file permissions will depend heavily on the server’s setup, and this is one way to help determine how your server is configured.)

Here are the permissions of folders and a file in the cashe directory:

[root@ojs cache]# ls -lrtda */
drwxr-x--- 2 apache apache  4096 22 jun 14.52 t_config/

Hi @eddoff,

You’re probably encountering this issue: Plugin install does not work across filesystems · Issue #6035 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub

Thank you @asmecher!

Now it works! Hope to solve the import issue also so that we can make our upgrade!
