Not sure I'm posting this in the correct location, please forgive. I wasn't able to get the 1.15 messages or the 1.9 files scripts to work due to various errors. So I had a go with the new all-in-one script from the CVS (http://grabyahoogroup.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/grabyahoogroup/yahoo_group/download.pl?view=log) version 1.11
anyway, script seems to run just fine, but it finishes up after a "No Such File or Directory" without getting any files after the one that throws the error. This leaves me with a folder with the group name, which contains the cookies file, log file, and a folder called 'Files' that contains all the files up to the one that comes up "No Such…". That's it, no messages, no photos. I invoked the script with the following command: download.pl -group=staradopt -all
I've a copy of the output to the command window as well as the logfile, but the file names contain people's names so I can't post them publicly but would be happy to PM or email them.
The "No Such File or Directory" error seems to be due to trailing spaces in the folder names - there seem to be a few of those in this particular group. With that fixes I now get a folder called 'Messages' but all in contains is an empty attachment folder. Trying the script on another group it hangs on an attachment after saying "redirected to…" a lengthy URL.
The new version doesn't do messages for now. Attachments and Files should definitely work.
I have applied to join the group - if you are the group owner can you please approve. I will let you know how it goes once I am approved.
excellent, once the trailing spaces in the folder names were removed I was able to get files to work. That particular group has no attachments. I've sent an invite to another group I was attempting to archive - the one that was hangin on the attachments.
I didn't realize the new script didn't do messages, that explains that. The old script 1.15 gives out after login with "couldn't get message count"
Haha Pam threw me out of staradopt - I hope she doesn't have any hard feelings about it :).
As for Perfectlypreciousvolunteers I don't seem to have access to the files area - the only thing I see is the attachments area. Files and photos.
Is it possible to email me the log file after running the download with -verbose option - maybe that will throw some light ?
email sent to the address associated with your yahoo group id. ;-)
I am closing this thread as all the concerns have been addressed by now.
