A way to pick up where I left off when a connection is dropped during a site mirror? (7 posts)

    I'm wondering if there is an easy way to pick up where I left off when trying to mirror a whole site? I try to do monthly local archives of my site. Usually this works fine if I just leave it to go overnight. However, recently my ISP has been weird and the connection gets dropped after a few hours. Is there any way I can have the mirror start whrere the last mirror session left off before it got disconnected?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Which version of Fetch are you using?

    Fetch 5.6 should try to automatically resume mirrors when there is a short disconnection. (If the server is unavailable for several minutes, Fetch would be unable to resume, however.)

    If you aren't using Fetch 5.6, please update to it and give it a try and see if it fixes the problem.

    If you're already using Fetch 5.6, let us know and we'll investigate further.

    Thanks,

    I do have version 5.6. I think that most likely the disconnection is too long maybe 1 or two minutes so that's why its not working. Thanks for your input.

    Hi Justin,

    Okay. If you could send us your Fetch log - a record of Fetch's conversation with the server - we can take a look and see why the automatic resume didn't happen and if there's anything we can do to help with your situation.

    To find the Fetch.log file:

    * Click the desktop background to select the Finder.
    * In the Finder, go to the "Go" menu and choose "Home"
    * Open the Library folder
    * Open the Logs folder
    * Find the file named "Fetch.log"

    Email it to us at bugs@fetchsoftworks.com .

    The file may be somewhat large, so you may want to compress it before sending it to us. (Select the Fetch.log file, go to the File menu, choose Compress, and send the resulting zip file instead.)

    Thanks,

    Hi Justin,

    I wanted to follow up here - we didn't receive a log file from you. If you sent it, could you please resend it? We had some issues with our email system yesterday and your email may have gotten waylaid.

    Please let us know if and when you have sent the log file, so that we can be on the lookout for it.

    Thanks,

    Hey, I appreciate the replies here. It looks like my ISP is working better now and I haven't been able to replicate the error for several days. If I get the error again I'll be sure to grab the log file and post it here. Thanks again.
