Hi! I am David Cox the Webmaster of eswordlibrary.com. The site has gotten so large and has so many visitors to it that it has become a grave problem in causing the web server to affect other websites that they have. Add to that the hackers trying to break the web site, things are just difficult. My hosting provider has suspended it until I can fix this. Frankly, the way I understand this, is that there are too many posts and downloads on the website. There are two many plugins (small pieces of software that do things like downloads, listing posts in the same category, etc=. “Fixing it” is difficult (at least for me).
As such I have to make a decision. I use theWord Bible software, and I do not use eSword. I provide this eSword content as a service to the world. Unfortunately, eSword users don’t seem to like to donate to this website which adds a financial concern to this situation. Therefore, I am going to have to make some hard decisions here.
What I am going to do is to delete all the posts and downloads from this site, and make compressed zip packages with 30 or 40 eSword modules in each one. At this point, I have 1400 posts for eSword modules, and 4000+ modules already on the website waiting for posts to be made for them. I have an additional 3000 to 5000 eSword modules in my laptop that I could post. I have to sort them to see if the module is already posted or not though.
Even with all of this, this site might still be suspended again because of too many visitors and too much pressure from hackers. I am not going to use a plugin to make the downloads, just the native WordPress download function.
I am hoping that these changes will make the site such that it can be “up”, and continue. Today is September 7, 2022, and I will be working on it as I can. The future of this site is not fixed, and in a worse case scenario, I will just erase it completely, and leave some modules on it. I might post say 100 modules and delete them after a week and post another 100. Something like that.
In reworking this website like I am doing, I am sorry but there will be no brief description of the module nor an image of the book cover. Those aspects are lost in the shuffle. I am sorry about that.
I am sorry for the inconvenience of all of this. It is very difficult to make a site like this and keep the technical problems out of it. Please pray for me as I am working on this site and praying for what God would want me to do with it.
September 7, 2022
P.S. Note that there may be duplication of some modules within these sets. I do not consider the two formats, topx and refi, as duplication, nor the combination of the individual modules of a set into a master volume of all. Some people prefer one or the other, so chose what you like and delete the other if it bothers you. Since I am boiling down 1,000s of modules in one group (based an author’s last name), and I am ending up with only about 400-500 in most cases, I may miss some. Please delete the older modules. My idea is that you download the entire set and then install only those that you want to use.
