Old version of h5p file

olavh's picture


I want to install a previous version of the h5p libraries file, but this is all I find:


When I try to install the current version I get this error:

"The system was unable to install the Column component from the package, it requires a newer version of the H5P plugin. This site is currently running version 1.10, whereas the required version is 1.12 or higher. You should consider upgrading and then try again."

The reason I wan't the older version is because of this plugin for the adapt learning package:


which doesn't work correct with the most recent version of H5P.

This issue could be solved if I could get the older version that works with version 1.10.

Best regards

If you want old versions of libraries they can be retrieved from GitHub: https://github.com/h5p
All libraries should be tagged with the different release versions, so you could checkout the correct tag and pack an h5p package with the h5p cli pack command.

However I would strongly suggest to always keep on the latest version, and rather try to get someone to update the adapt-h5p repository if that is essential for your site. You will be missing out on great functionality and security updates if you stop updating the H5P plugin.

Another approach could be to go into the .h5p (which is in essence a zip file with a different extension) file you downloaded and remove the h5p.column library, and any other libraries that require a higher H5P plugin version than what you have, then repack it, and attempt to re-upload it.

Thanks Thomas

I will try that. I had an attempt to repackage this on friday, but I will check the 2 options you've listed.
