Capture ? Use Converter?
Aug 9th, 2008 at 1:12pm
There are no actions to perform.
We have a site that a company has gone defunct and would like to capture some historical data they had in a YaBB discussion board.

The board itself is still on-line but we don't know for how much longer. Some ISP's clean up fast, some never do.

Is there a way to capture all the posts of that existing board. No one has administrative rights. No one has access to the root directories.

We could go in and grab each message manually but that would be a tremendous amount of work. Any other ideas?

Paul

Give HTTrack a try.

Hope that helps.

We have played with HTTrack and are able to pull out the basic YABB files, but not the data.

We are unable to download the Yabb2 folder and that's generally where all the data resides.

Any suggestions
