Warning to the Vintage Koha Users

It is being found that Koha software installed via Live CD (vintage versions 3. x) appears to be in error. I do receive a lot of queries on how to recover the crashed koha. Some of the libraries don’t even have the backup file.

Keep the following in mind

  • The live CD is created for learning purposes only, which is not intended to use in a production environment
  • You may lose your entire data (bibliographic, patron, circulation ) unless you take this warning seriously
  • Properly back up your koha (you can automate backup and sync the backup file to the Google Drive cloud storage of library or regularly take and keep the backup in a USB or somewhere else.
  • Koha ILS should be upgraded to the stable version within a period of two years at least to have new features

I do strongly recommend the libraries that are still using a live cd based environment to the stable version and maintain your data.

For proper up-gradation and support, you can hire me as well.
