Subject:Stuck downloading comments
Posted by:bigkid.
Time:1:36 pm.

Hi folks.  I have the "updated" ljarchive where it fixes the error when it gets to downloading comments (which I had before) but now it just hangs at "Downloading Comments -- 1 of 5623..."

I'm using Windows 10, up to date. Just curious if its actually downloading all of them but not updating... or if it really is just hanging and if there is a fix.  It's been like that for about 2.5 hours now.  It seems to zip through the first part which I'm assuming is all the main entries.

Hoping there are still people around this community :)

Thank you.

I never had any issues with LJ archive before but I just installed it on a new computer running on Windows 10 and suddenly I'm getting this error message:

Subject:comment icons?
Posted by:avashida.
Time:11:26 am.
I don't suppose there's any way for ljarchive to save the icons of comments?

I'm incredibly grateful to have just the comments themselves saved, but I just wondered.

Subject:Trojan??
Posted by:canadanne.
Time:12:00 am.
Mood: worried.
I've been using ljArchive with no problems for ages, but while I was downloading some entries just now, my antivirus popped up with this message:

Application performing dangerous activity characteristic of malware

What the hell?? Has anyone else had this? I don't know if it's a false positive and I should just ignore it, or if the program has somehow become infected, or if it was a Trojan all along and Kaspersky has only just identified it as such. 8/

I really like ljArchive and don't want to lose it! (Especially if there's any truth to the rumours about LJ being in trouble - this is my only backup.)

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?

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?

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.

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.

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?

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:

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?
