Any way to replace the WP-Filebase plugin?

I need to revamp an old site that is dependent on the WP-Filebase plugin. It was used to make a library of science papers, with the files and the metadata needed to display them in an index.

The problem is that WP-Filebase seems to be a dead plugin, and if I update the site’s PHP this WP-Filebase plugin breaks the entire site. It’s running 7.3 right now.

Anyone else had this problem? Any advice is appreciated.
