I don't know what version of OpenSRF you're on, but you'll want to
upgrade to 2.1.0.

For Evergreen you'll need to upgrade from 1.6 -> 2.0 -> 2.1 -> 2.2 ->
2.3, with all of the intermediate SQL upgrades in between. Also, 1.6 has
not been supported for a very long time, and even 2.0 has been out of
support for some time now, so there won't be much community support
available for those hurdles.

And you'll want to upgrade your Ubuntu 8.04 server to Ubuntu 12.04.

And you'll likely want to change from script-based circulation to
in-database circulation, and from the JSPAC catalogue to the TPAC

I honestly think, at this point, you would be better off just dumping
the core data from the actor, asset, biblio, and action tables (those
are the important ones I can think of off the top of my head), and
treating it as a migration of data to a brand new Evergreen server.
