Ebook Linker Down - Source CODE Released !!!

 During the last examination period at SLIIT, the Ebook sharing website (Thariya's Ebook Linker) which I designed was very much helpful for me and for my friends to share the learning resources we had. I received so many good comments for developing that from my friends as well as my lecturers at SLIIT. 

It was successfully hosted at but after two or three weeks I got to know that the website was not working properly. The reason was the deletion of the database from the server. I guess it was done by the site administrators at and I can't blame them since it's a free hosting service. Maybe they received complains from the book authors for violating copy rights.

I have no intention of running the site by uploading a database to the server. Therefore I thought of sharing the source code of the website with you. It was developed using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, .NET framework 3.5, ASP.NET and C# as the programming language. 

This will be useful for 1st year students at SLIIT for the ITA group project.

The database is also included in the Zip file. You have to attach the database to the MS SQL server on your PC when running the website. (Read this post for more information

Then open the project in Microsoft Visual Studio. You need to modify the web.config file with your MS SQL server name. In my PC it is (local). Replace (local) with your server name.

If you don't know the server name, you can open the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio and the Server Name will appear as shown in the image below.
If you have any problem regarding the source code, just drop me a message via the contact me page.
