I have a problem : 0 bytes in my O: data disk where I have installed kiwix in portable way.
The DATA folder is 104 GB.
I go to put the content if you may help me to explore and decide.
I want to have wikipedia spanish
I previously downloaded the spanish version of about 15 GB
The DATA folder contains two folders :
The Profiles folder contains : yarvgu0s.default folder
CONTENT folder is 29.2 GB aprox.
yarvgu0s.default es 75.3 GB aprox.
I think some zim is not completely downloaded. I only see the spanish wikipedia.
I may have data duplicating considering i move data to make a portable version from the old installation i presumed....
england for schools
I think they are downloading
Any other data please ask me.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
It's complicated to diagnosis this kind of situation. The current status of what you have downloaded should be in the library and you should not any hidden/lost/forgotten/incomplete files somewhere. If you achieve to create this kind of situation please open a bug with the the step by step procedure to reproduce the problem.
Really what I need is the structre the data is saved under DATA folder.
What is suoposed to be twice during download and the exact distribution of files. With this will be enough. I don't see in the tutorials.
What files must be in DATA folder ?
What files may be duplicated ?
What files may be downloading ?
What files can be delete ?
What is saved exactly in the Content Folder that is not in the profiles folder?
Information about meta4 extension files and aria2 extension file.
You have some kind of documentation here
The leading place are the library file in the "library" directory. Content are located using it.
Why there is another data folder inside
with three subfolders : content (is the same content ?) , index, library ?
No idea, this is not a standard situation.
I think is bad explained. It's not the same structure and gives no detail of the type files.
How can I determine what files must i mantain and what are deletable.
Kiwix does not create files which should be deleted.
Please where must be the data
I have the folder O:\Kiwix\DATA
and two subfolders :
Where must be allocated the data ?
the "data" directory must be in kiwix.exe parent directory to be automatically loaded at start.
I don't understand. The parent directory of kiwix.exe ?
have you seen the screenshots above.
i don't know what to do. I don't find good tutorials or any explanation to my situation.
As you can see in the screenshots the DATA folder under kiwix folder O:\kiwix
contains two subfolders more.
Without the knowledge of the structure I can't continue.
What can i do now ?
I can't continue without good and trustful information.
Have you seen my screnshots ?
Do you need any additional data ?
I am really in despair
I try to continue without help.
Essay and error method. Obtain a security copy of kiwix files.
I delete the zim files have not modification because of uploading the english full wikipedia.
I have investigating how i could and aria2 is in relation with a program to download the zim files.
This morning i have downloaded 6.00 GB of the english wikipedia but haven't any file of this characterístic in my pc. !!!!!!!!!!
i decided download the smaller english simple wikipedia and get it .
O observ that the new download seems ubicated in
I dowload all the database of the simple english and after index.
I observ a new folder is created in
And a new encyclopedia appear in the list of "mi biblioteca" to be removed or load.
A few days ago i had problem with this beta version because of loss of bookmarks created recently. But the xml seems to be in its place.
But this night i have open kiwix and the simple english wikipedia is gone from the list.
So this is clearly a bug of the program.
An interesting point about the download of the full english wikipedia is that i have a file of 26.209.558kb.en en kiwix.content
As i told before i didn't find any file of the size the kiwix screen says.
Finally i determine kiwix is using the 26.209.588 kb initial.
Now is from value 40.710.144 kb and i don't know and have any security of good results.
Seems a strange behaviour of aria2 module because seems synchronize the initial copy or i don't know because is not reference in any place i could look.
The programa is not very easy to handle and I don't know what to do or how is organized the data in the profiles folder (See Screenshots above).
I continue in despair with this bad documented program.
I continue in despair with this bad documented program.
I am going to try in the aria2 forum. I need to know how kiwix - a bad documented program - organizes the information. There are xml files, ini files. It will take a long time investigation by miself.
I made new proofs
I have twice in my library the spanish wikipedia.
With the utility EveryWhere i find two zim databases. One in the system directory and the other in
I delete the first one after made a security copy.
And now I have nothing.
The last one is not recognized in that folder.
I need urgently know the exact organization of kiwix.
I finish download english wikipedia . I can open and appear in the library. The only one. The rest may be disconfigurated or not pointed by the program.
I use the option open the file to try to point to the zim. I move the spanish zim together with the rest of zim according to the new downloads.
What about the index of the spanish version ?
The simple english index wikipedia_en_simple_12_2013.zim.idx
contains several files i will try to find in the "portable" installation....
I cut the folder af116f7f-da98-0588-0588-a9ee30a4a7c838d0.index
inside the kiwix data index folder
If not i suppose i will have the opportunity to reindex
When I enter in the program all is gone. So i think i must point again - one by one to the zim and reindex ....
Bad program indeed.
At least, with essay and error system I have several days ago going well the spanish wikipedia, the english wikipedia and the simple wikipedia.
