Okay, Thanks for your great jobs on TranslateWiki. Seems i must use Pywikipedia. If you have time, Please make list of Persian translations for me. Also SQL or XML dump of this wiki (separated for each language) or a replication on toolserver is other solutions I think.

May it is better this thread moved to Portal:Fa. Thanks again!

Feel free to move the thread. Will get back with a reply. Data dump: have to ask Niklas.

I'm running a backup script now. We'll have to inspect what this results in. If it's OK, we can schedule a weekly dump.

php ./dumpBackup.php --current --report=1000 --skipheader --skip-footer --conf=../LocalSettings.php --output=bzip2:$HOME/dump.bzip2

Backup is ready. Took about 20 minutes to create. Now checking if there's not something in there we wouldn't want to distribute (I think that there are no issues, but better safe than sorry). Will now also prepare a list of '/fa' pages with namespace.

  • fa.txt contains all pages ending "/fa"
  • contains an XML dump of

Thank you. I don't need fa.txt because I will use "LIKE" on titles (also this is not needed really for me), But just a little problem, I can not download huge files in periods of time because it will consume my Internet traffic limits and my Internet traffic is so limited.

Can you split this dumps if you have program for publishing this dump also in future?

ebraminiotalk19:30, 15 April 2011

Split what/how? It's "only" a 77MB download.

Siebrand21:17, 15 April 2011

Splitting dump of each language. This tool is useful if you want.

Sadly, yes, it is only "77mb" but is big for me :(

ebraminiotalk22:22, 15 April 2011

Download it patiently then!

Okay, I will solve my problem myself :) Thanks for your great helps.
