Subject:Can't download comments
Posted by:ffutures.
Time:1:19 am.
For some time now I've been unable to download comments to messages posted after 10/24/2012.

When I try to sync the messages download, but the comments don't, and I get an error message saying that the server doesn't allow comments to be downloaded. The details are as follows:

ljArchive Error: EF.ljArchive.Engine.ExpectedSyncException: An expected exception occurred: ExportCommentsNotSupported ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (502) Bad Gateway.
at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()
at EF.ljArchive.Engine.Sync.ExportCommentsBody(OptionsRow or, ILJServer iLJ, SessionGenerateResponse sgr, Int32 serverMaxID, Int32 localMaxID, CommentCollection cc)
at EF.ljArchive.Engine.Sync.ThreadStart()
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---


I thought that this was a problem with Livejournal, but I'm told that the software is working for others. As far as I know I have the latest version, the one that was hacked after official development stopped.

I've tried renaming the archive and starting again, but that just got me the same result - all messages downloaded, but comments stopped in 2012.

Anyone know what's wrong?

Subject:ljarchive is broken/wontfix, right?

LJArchive seems to have been crippled since the last LJ API update and there's no sign it's being maintained or that maintainers are even paying attention to this comm, right? I should consider it permanently dead?

Subject:Sync Error
Posted by:losthemlock.
Time:6:56 pm.
Hi!

I just downloaded LJ Archive after I started getting the cold sweats about losing my old journal entries. I haven't tried to do this for a few years, so I really like the look of the new program!

My only concern is that I get the following sync error, which stops me from downloading anything. It looks like I could successfully download when I deselected "comments," so I guess it's a comment problem, but I'd like to download comments if I can.

Any help?

Can someone recommend the latest version of the LJ Archive - and a link to download?

My Norton indicated that my program was infected and recommended that I remove it.

Thanks for your help.

Subject:Server not responding
Posted by:china_shop.
Time:9:48 am.
I'm consistently getting a "The server is not responding. Please try again later." error message when I try to sync.

More info under the cutCollapse )

Tried re-installing, but it didn't help. Anyone?

ETA:
1. I'm using the version from http://www.memory-prime.de/lja/ljarchive_setup.zip
2. It actually stopped syncing on April 1 (suspicious date!), but I kept thinking it would come right, so I didn't do anything about it till now.

Subject:exception, apparently while importing comments
Posted by:steve98052.
Time:5:47 pm.
Judging from the timing of this error message, it's happening while trying to import comments, but I haven't dug into the code on Sourceforge.

Is there a good work-around for this?

Edit: put code behind lj-cut.

Subject:Problem connecting
Posted by:tearsarevain.
Time:9:21 am.
Hi, I mostly use InsaneJournal these days, but they moved servers a few weeks ago and ever since then I've found that LJArchive isn't able to connect to IJ to back up my journal. I've tried creating a new archive file but it still doesn't work. Am I being really stupid, or is there a way around this? I'm using version 0.9.7 which seems to be the latest version. This is the error message that comes up when I open LJArchive:

Subject:Another massive error message
Posted by:kayshapero.
Time:11:37 pm.
Downloaded the latest ljarchive program, ran it, right in the middle of the comment index loading it came out with this monstrosity:

Wondering if the host decided it was taking too long and blew up or something.  Personally I would LIKE to be able to archive my LJ; I do have older backups, maybe it could be set to a more recent string or something?

I see a lot of posts like this.  I see no indication whatsoever that anybody knows what to do about them, intends to do anything about them, or has done anything about them.  Do any of the folks involved with the construction of this program read this community?

Subject:Exporting
Posted by:dahliablue.
Time:2:23 pm.
I recently installed the updated version of LJ Archive (thank you, btw!) and it works like a charm. Now I have a question about exporting. I'm a little confused about the best way to export to keep for offline use. Ideally, I'd like to print out my journal to keep, but I don't know the best way to do this.

Thanks for any help!

Subject:A Question About Deletion
Posted by:the_zero_kid.
Time:5:56 pm.
Hey, I joined this community to ask a question and the question is this: If I were too delete my Livejournal, would the ljArchive program still keep/archive/save my entries? In other words, will my old LJ still be archived if there is no longer a journal on livejournal.com to sync from? I'd like to keep them on my computer through the program but I'm unsure what deletion would do. I had planned on using ljArchive to keep all my old entries on my hard drive, and then deleting my LJ from the internet and starting fresh, with a new blog. I couldn't find the answer to this anywhere, so I turn to you. Thanks in advance for any answers you can provide.

http://syredronning.livejournal.com/1530901.html has a link to a fixed version of LJArchive. I've run it and it now works fine, both syncing entires and comments.

If you download it, be sure to thank the journal owner syredronning, who paid a coder to fix it.
