Hi, a few years back I setup a Koha server on  in AWS for a small rural school, its run ok ever since, I occasionally do a backup of the DB and get asked to restart it when it seems to go AWOL.


Its running a very old version Debian 3.2, and needs updating. I am a network engineer and know my limitations re linux admin and specifically Koha.


So was looking for someone who could take a look at it, I guess back up the DB, build a new instance pull back the DB and do any patches to bring the DB into line with the lattest version, this would probably require Koha specific knowledge.


Anyone interested let me know, and just a heads up, being a small rural school, any reward would be minimal 😍

Wow! Blast from the past... both Koha and Debian Sarge (Which was EOL 12 years ago...)

Thanks marpada, Dan has graciously offered to take a look, I am sure if the upgrade of an old DB to new proves an issue he will call out.

Just wondering why the school has a risky DIY solution rather than the government funded N4L?

Library systems are not part of N4l, ne er have been and do not expect them to be in the near future, and just to say I did use to do contract work for N4l.

Should also point out the os was debian 8, kernel 3.2, not Debian 3.2, my bad.
