Craneconcertina.com - Going Soon!

Recommended Posts

A few years ago I set up a website devoted to the Crane Duet, www.craneconcertina.com

 

As I no longer play the concertina, I will not be renewing the domain name & hosting when it expires next month.

 

If anybody wants to take the site over, including updating the Gallery, I can look into getting it transferred, and provide instructions etc.

If anybody just wants to preserve it, I can send them the .html files behind it all. Unfortunately the gallery pages will not be so easy to transfer, as it is held in a SQL database - not sure if I can get into it to export everything.

 

PM me if you are interested.

If anybody just wants to preserve it,

 

There are 18 versions of the site archived on the waybackmachine

 

I roughly checked and the gallery didn't archived excerpt for the first page.

Using the wget or tools like it, I can get gallery images and many files named details.php@something and they are plain html file.

If anybody rewrite those files and links properly, I think, it can be preserved as a static site.

Sorry, I didn't check all pages. I had a quick skim and thought it was all there. But you're right.

I agree! Would you be willing to renew it for one more year to allow time for other options to be explored? If cost is an issue I would be willing to make a contribution toward that.

I believe that I just got the rest of the gallery loaded onto the Wayback Machine, but someone else should probably double-check: https://web.archive.org/web/20160406190542/http://craneconcertina.com/index.html .

It's a fairly normal part of operating a website to make a backup of databases. If it's not something you can do your web host should be able to do it for you.

I'm not proposing to host the site myself, but I finance my concertina habit by making SQL Server databases behave themselves, so if there is someone interested in taking this on and there's anything I can help with on that side of things, I can certainly take a look ...

I love my crane duet and would be willing to take over the site. I plan to play my duet for another 20 years now that I can read music for it.
