Where are the pdfs located on my server?

Hi there,
I have a local installation of OJS3 on my server but am unable to find where the pdfs of the articles are stored. The urls on the journal website point to symbolic links “…/article/view/77/69” but I need to know where they are stored? Are they even stored at my website? Or on an OJS server?

Thanks for your help!

If needed: the website is www.clinjournal.org/clinj

Hi @verhoevenben,

The PDFs are located in files/journals/???/articles/

Regards, Primož

Hi all,


…where files is your files_dir from config.inc.php. But watch out, if this actually is the files subdirectory in your OJS installation, that you protect it from direct access! See “Recommended Configuration” in the README document.
