Squaring up an old closet door


Has anyone ever tried to square up an old door? Any tips?

This is solid wood with plywood panel inserts. Not an expensive door, but it's 84" tall, so a replacement would have to be a custom order. I've got more time than money and have never hung a new door before but I know how hard it is. My dad used to hang doors.

Looks like that door was sticking at one point. The rails are pulled apart.

I suspect someone was trying to swing on it in the past. House used to be rented to college students. I pretty much assume it will have to be taken apart and re-glued, if even that is possible. Just wondering if this could be a DIY job.
