Appropedia:Current dump

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The latest dump of Appropedia - the text of all pages on the site, in one big XML file - is found here or you can check the filesize and date[1] in the folder.

The dump gives you the newest revision of each page, not the entire history.

New dumps are made weekly on Saturday night, at midnight.

The dump can be used:

Making the dump[edit]

For the reference of Appropedia tech people, making the dump involves these steps (to be filled in): The following runs by cron each Saturday:

cd /home/apropos/appropedia.org/approbackups
/usr/local/php5/bin/php ../maintenance/dumpBackup.php --current | gzip > currentdump.xml.gz

Media files[edit]

We don't currently have a way to publicly share our backups of media files, but we'd like figure out how, and do it - possibly as an HTML dump. It's on our list of things-to-do. Help is welcome.

Notes[edit]

  1. The date of the latest dump could also be put in the filename, which would be handy... but we're not quite sure how to do this. If you like this idea, and know exactly how to do it, please leave a note on the talk page - thanks!
