Archiver No Longer Available

Hey Creators!

I was using the NING Network Archiver and it worked fine until I got to blogs.

I get this error message:

'A downloading error occured. Please try again.'

I contacted NING and they said it was a bug that they are aware of. After several weeks of back/forth exchange I was told that this tool is no longer available!!

How can this be possible without any sort of prior warning or message, etc.!!

They said I can manually back up any files as needed!! Really? I have hundreds and thousands of items to back up and manually would take a lifetime!

Anyone have any ideas or alternatives?

Thanks.

    And I offered archiving support and sort of predicted that this was going to happen over here.

    Ning 2.0 Archive Support

    I have spent a lot of time perfecting the science of archiving because Ning has unique challenges when it comes to this.

    I can assist anyone who needs to archive their network even if they "have hundreds and thousands of items to back up and manually would take a lifetime!"

  • I hope other important ning 2 features don't become discontinued...

    • Hi there!

      As I know we are not planning to discontinue features available on 2.0, the archiver is an exception as basically, it's a separate product used to upload data.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

  • A question for Kyryl_Ning_Support: Have you abandoned the migration of networks from Ning2 to Ning3? How will you migrate if the archiver is not operational?

    • Hi there!

      The migration is not abandoned and it's still under development. The archiver is a standalone tool which is not connected anyhow to the migrations script that would be used to transfer content from 2.0 to 3.0 network.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team. 

  • I would like to say a huge, huge thanks to @Garfield Archivist for helping me archive and backup my blog data from NING! He was even so kind and went the extra mile to format it exactly how I needed! 

    I can't say enough kind words and he's truly been so helpful. 

    If anyone is looking to archive or backup data WITHOUT the help of NINGs Archiver tool, he's the man!
