Can I get copy of the site?

Post by SteveR »


Nothing lasts forever, especially on the world wide web! If I wanted a copy of this site, how much would it cost and what would I store it on?

12x36 Enco Lathe, 9x42 Bridgeport, SMAW, O/A, Miller MIG w/gas
Not enough measuring tools...
1.5" Allen Models Consolidation in progress
1" FEF in progress
1" LE Pacific "Project"
3/4" LE Northern Project
Measure twice, cut once, make it again.... :)

I'll bring this to the owner's attention.

Wise people talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something.

After all of these years, the website and associated content are huge.
I am not sure making a copy would be practical.
I do make regular incremental backups to a server located at a different site.

Also, just doing a copy of the database would also include personal information on the members, which
needs to be kept private.

This may be possible to do without getting personal data or even involving the site admin. As it is a phpBB forum you can follow the advise on this post on how to scrape all the posts to your hard drive. It will require some computer literacy though. ... hpbb-forum

Essentially just search for "phpBB forum scraper" and you may get lucky with something that will work.
