Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Dear all,
People were asking me how to back up your LiveJournal.

Everyone
LiveJournal provides the Export Journal page, which gives you one month at a time. It only gives you the entries, not the comments.

Everyone
LJ Book converts your journal to a nice .PDF. However, everyone and their dog, cat, mouse, and bird is using it now; the site is terribly slow.

Windows
SourceForge has a program, LJ Archive. Supposedly, this program downloads both entries and comments.

Macintosh
(I used this method.) The program XJournal has a "History" page. By clicking the "download" button, you get all of your entries (but not comments.)

I haven't seen recommended methods for backing up specifically under Unix.
