Cannot create a dump of All The Tropes content
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I assume this option is not available due to the size of the data set, but I would like to request a 2019 dump of the site content and images, preferably backed up offsite on, as I would like to use it to perform some research for further potential changes to site extensions and for use as a general development sandbox in a localhost.

At this moment we don't have the resources to generate a dump (causes a OOM).

We can try a current dump rather than a full backup (sorry for back and fourth).

A current revision only dump would be more than fine, I simply need a recent copy of the data.

@Arcane21 Ok, great. I will take care of it.

Unfortunately, there is a MWException when trying to get a dump of the wiki, so we'll have to troubleshoot.
