Version of OJS to upload to

Do you upgrade from OJS 2.4.8-5 to OJS 3.2.1-4?

My update order
OJS 2.x > OJS 2.4.8-4
OJS 2.4.8-4 > OJS 3.0.2
OJS 3.0.2 > 3.1.2-4
OJS 3.1.2-4 >
This order has successful results (for me)

Hi @newone,

You can do it, it usually goes well. You just cannot upgrade directly from 2.4 to 3.3, a 3.1 or 3.2 step is mandatory.

As Josh said, this is possible.

The documentation about the “upgrade path” and the upgrade process is published here:


Thank you to all, and for the link. That link was very helpful.

I don’t have terminal, but I will try it offline and I hope to be able to copy files without a command.

Is there a way to purge lots users at once? I would like to remove all users only with the exception of a few.

I also have character issues. For example, a little mark on top of letter e does not always show. Is there a way to fix this?
