Archive updated again. Archive is now current through 23 September 2015.

http://www.sciencemadness.org/archive/SM-offline2.ova

This release is 10,673,768,448 bytes in size, md5 hash accd4811ce4f8b8125b19793c3794f25.

The live forum is growing so large, and the archive itself is taking so much space, that I may have to take the archive offline in a few days just to free up space for the live forum. Please send me a U2U if you can host large files like this.

Archive updated again. Archive is now current through 16 January 2016.

http://www.sciencemadness.org/archive/SM-offline2.ova

This release is 11,788,337,664 bytes in size, md5 hash 2371a99d11c848860b18933c37942233.

Remember, if you are unhappy with the administration of the forum, the archive is a chance to replicate Sciencemadness elesewhere, under different leaders and rules. The archive comes with tools to ease replication onto a new host, though you will still need reasonable familiarity with Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP. This is a chance at <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exit,_Voice,_and_Loyalty">exit</a>, so that I do not have the temptation or the means to leave members stuck in an organization they are unhappy with.

Is there a 2017 backup available? You could host it at google drive or mega.nz

Okay, in case anyone is having trouble with this or wants to do something similar to what I'm doing, I got the virtual machine running remotely in a headless configuration. VirtualBox can be installed and run via a command line, making it a million times easier to work with via a standard terminal, rather than try to figure out all the quirks of the virtual machine terminal. This allows for easily accessing the guest's filesystem from the host, since you can use tools like rsync and scp over ssh. Since I didn't want to waste my phone's data, I spun up a new Ubuntu server on AWS, then downloaded gflip's copy of the virtual machine here:

https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B6GYzE-Eq2NmaVJFbVpKNUV0NlE&...

The following perl script will be able to download the file from the above url:

https://github.com/circulosmeos/gdown.pl

Then I set it up so that I could SSH into it locally, using port forwarding as described here:

https://leemendelowitz.github.io/blog/ubuntu-server-virtualb...

The SQL database for the site, compressed, is about 8GB. This seems excessive. Will need to look into it some more.




The first step in the process of learning something is admitting that you don't know it already.

The download has started so looks like it is now good.

I downloaded the previous backup and managed to get it running. Remarkably simple.

I downloaded it with the intention of helping Melgar migrate the forum software. phpBB is complex!

I may also parse the posts to extract any youtube links in my ongoing efforts to make copies of all relevant channels.
