ljArchive software help?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone on my flist has used the ljArchive software? I installed it, gave the right username and password and everything. Have been trying to download my journal for days now, but I keep getting the error "The server is not responding. Try again later." 
Umm.. any clues on what I'm doing wrong?

cheers, Rachel

I've never been able to get that to work for me, either.

Quite a few comments below hon.. see if any of it helps you.

I use it, but the really weird thing is, if I open up the one in the start menu it doesn't work, but if I open up the one in the My Documents folder it does. So the only suggestion I have is maybe you are opening up the wrong one. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but I have no idea what I'm doing...LOL!!


You know the weird thing is, I used it a few months ago (during the LJ strikethrough '07) and it worked. Then I forgot about it, and tried updating the same archive last week and it just won't cooperate. Instead it wiped out 191 out of my 194 entries from the archive! *cries* Tried opening from My Documents as you said but no luck :(

Hiya sweetie!!! :)) Thanks for your help *shoves at you* haha :P:D Where've you been hon??

That is really odd. I uninstalled mine and redid it and it worked. Have you done everything on a default setting because that's what I did.

Okay, I'll try reinstalling it. cheers hon.

I never had any problems with it, so it's hard to say why it isn't working on your PC

you could try the version I uploaded here:

the only thing besides using the correct server (or better yet, taking the default) I can think of, is proxy server- lj_archive takes your IE connection settings

Thanks for your help hon! I reinstalled with your version and used the default settings. I also have no proxies in IE and tried downloading both my LJs again. This time it downloaded my raingazer LJ easily, but no luck on this one (cyndrarae) :(
My guess is because raingazer is really small - like 54 entries with minimal graphics, maybe that's why it got archived. But cyndrarae has 195 entries and a lot more graphics. Maybe that's why the request keeps getting timed out? *headdesk*
I think I need a smoke.. all this is giving me a headache :((
But thanks again sweetie, really sweet of you to help. At least I got one of my LJ's backed up! :) *hugs*

the size of the lj shouldn't matter at all - my other lj has over 900 entries and I am able to download it...

you could try to ask here:

there was already a similar problem, sadly without solution until now (or maybe just to updated):

I'd contact the lj-users and ask if they solved the problem by now

glad I could help at least a little bit; you're very welcome!

Okay so, I had two Protected entries in my LJ right - today I changed them both to Friends-only and ran LJarchive again. Guess what, it downloaded 100 out of my 200 entries.. and stopped!! Again!! :(( And didnt' download no comments either :(( I am so fucking sick of this stupid software I could kill something right now!! Aaaarrghh!!!! *sulks*
Sorry I'm offloading on you hon, didn't wanna spam everyone with my technology woes. *sniffs*
Just you ;)

oh, don't worry about it, I'm totally a geek, so I'm even interested in this topic :-)

I have many private entries in one of my LJs and it didn't make a difference

did you get any error messages after it stopped?

I'm really stupified about this - I never had any problems and sadly, don't have any idea what could cause yours :-(

anyway, if I ever come across any solutions, I'll let you know - until then, offload away! :-D

Thanks hon :) I'm just glad you don't mind my constant moaning about this lol. It's just so weird...

Huh. I figured since those were the only changes I made maybe that had something to do with it. Oh well, guess not.

And that's the thing about open software. You don't get any tech support from the manufacturers :(

*is exhausted*
