Scraping the entire history and moving it elsewhere is the final solution, but a daunting one!


Real easy if you can get into the database and you migrate to another PHPBB based site- all but impossible if not. Plus the ownership of the content may well actually be with TMF so without the owner's permission not a good idea.

Been here and done this with http://www.thehistoricdistrict.org - after we moved from that site the owner of the original site we moved from let me have access to the data and thanked me for setting up a "new home"

I have about 15 years of experience with phpBB (and Simple Machines, Invision, etc.) and I’m also a network engineer, so the issues here are not a mystery to me. I was given admin access to the forum only, and cannot perform a database backup or access any of the backend config. At one time I wrote a script to crawl the entire forum and and archive it page by page, but the host was not stable enough for it to complete even 1/100th of it without failing.
