I long aspired to get the library software working again. However I have to be realistic that it wasn't going to happen.

elendor_f PMed me yesterday to ask if I could help getting him access to the library. In the process, I discovered that the library software (running on a virtual machine copy of linux from 2010) has an export feature. After a bit of faff, I have managed to get everything I have for the old library backed up as plain .html files. No software, just very basic copies of the content. After uploading a ton of the support files to ensure it would work (like the header image, the css, and all the pictures), and doing a massive find and replace for all the links so they link correctly, it turns out that dumping the files onto a server works to give the appearance of the old working library.

So I offer out a link to the old library. No guarantees of anything are made, including longevity or stability. But given it's a series of straight html files, there's no reason it should break any time soon.

(I know that's a talismancy.com address. I don't have or want access to the Ulthuan server any more)

Were the files for the library supplied during the migration? I could try to get the online on Ulthuan.net.

Probably... ?

The files would have been in either root, /home, or /library, the database prefix was modx_.

If not, my local copy can be packaged up. But it doesn't work on a modern server due to using a deprecated version of php.

Hmm.. that does pose a challenge. I could set up a virtual server with an older version of PHP... Not sure how old I can go.

This is why we didn't have a working library when I handed you the site
