    I know this isn't exactly Mac related, but on another site that I frequent, a very long thread (and I mean very long...c. 25,000 posts) has been shut down because it is causing problems with the server. The site is a vbulletin site and, obviously, involves a lot of php. Now that the thread has been locked, I would like to archive it because it will be deleted eventually, but I don't know of any shortcuts to get around loading each page and saving it.
    There is another thread that also got locked that I will probably get asked to archive. It's even longer...c. 53,000 posts.

    Any suggestions? I've tried interarchy's web download function but the php seems to cut it off after d'l-ing the page layout info.

    Thanks in advance,
    MacV

    If you are a admin, you can backup the mysql database.

    If I were an admin, the threads wouldn't be locked ;)

    Now way to back it up PHP wise if you aren't the admin or connected to the MySQL in any way.
