The Acmlmboard Archive

Q: Why this?
A: Well, why not? It would be nice to have an archive of the past/present Acmlmboards out there for preservation purposes, especially since quite a bit of versions have since disappeared off the net, or were never released to begin with.
As far as I'm aware, this has been attempted before many years ago, but no surviving archive still exists.



Currently this archive covers the 1.x versions, as well an archive of the Acmlmboard Hacks people used to make back then.

The entries are generally ordered by date from the oldest to newest, and with few exceptions provide:
  • The original versions*, which should run unmodified on PHP 5.3.8 if register_globals is enabled
  • A fixed version which targets PHP 7.1, usually as a separate archive
  • A thorough changelog detailing what's new / updated compared to the closest older version.
Of course, contributions are welcome. If you can provide a version of Acmlmboard (be it 1.x or 2.x) or anything related to them, feel free to bug me via PM / IRC / Discord / what have you (or just reply to this thread, I guess :V).



Special thanks to various people for their direct and indirect contributions to this project.

TODO:
  • Archiving the 2.x versions properly
  • Acmlmboard Zero may be included in the future. I don't think versions after 2018 were publically released though.
  • Versions with a git repository available aren't included in full yet. I'm not quite sure how to handle those.


*for few versions I unfortunately couldn't provide the original untouched version.
While the changes are incredibly minor, I marked them with a "_d" at the end of the file name.
Hopefully I'll eventually be allowed to share the full unmodified versions. That said, the original versions are definitely getting preserved, just not publically.

i assume all the security issues are as-is, correct?


this is really neat anyway though, lots of these versions I have never been able to find, and it's cool to see them all preserved

correct. the "fixed" versions only update the code to work on PHP 7.1 and provide an install file/db dump. nothing more, nothing less.

the 2.x versions have quite a few problems which makes archiving properly difficult and this is likely gonna take a while. but yeah eventually they'll be getting added.

I meant 2.0, 2.01 and such, not 2.1 and 2.5.x.

A lot of the 2.x series will not work on PHP 7+.

The codebase has only recently been updated for 2.5.x to work on PHP 7, which in itself was a bit of a nightmare. A lot of the design for 2.x was very loose, and relied on code methods which don't work for PHP 7.

At a core level, a lot of the 2.5 code can be traced back to its 2.0 roots.. as much of an insecure mess as that was. I know that much, as I have tinkered with the code back then.

Honestly, the PHP7 support would be 2.6 if you asked me.. There was so much to clean and fix.


The world could always use more heroes!

2nd June 2021 update:

Added a few more older versions:
- 1.0 -> appears to be the version used (or at least very close to it) when the original board went live
- 0.0 -> Extremely early and lacks a version number (from 25th Dec 2000), recently found on an old hard drive

The fixed versions of these ones are a bit special in that they were run under PHP 8.0.3 instead of 7.x... there's still a myriad of warnings but they should work there (read: no exceptions caused by using indexes with unquoted keys).

2.x versions coming eventually, asdf
