Zip installation - Git upgrade


I installed OJS by ZIP file - Downloaded in my server. Now I want to know if it is possible to upgrade OJS by git, and how.

Thank you

Hi @luismurillo,

I don’t believe that’s feasible, or recommended. In theory, I could see how you could do it, but it would be a ton of work. Given that your install is relatively new, I would recommend you simply start from scratch, and reinstall from git directly.

Alternatively, you could also enjoy using the stable zip version for a while, until there is a major update; then I would probably try to install the git version in parallel, and subtly switch without your users noticing anything.

This documentation will not be maintained past September 2019, but it’s probably the most thorough and useful, I found. Details will vary on the specifications of your hosting services, database, etc.

Good luck!
