Post by Dizzy » Sun Oct 01, 2017 4:58 am

https://wiki.beyondunreal.com/ has been offline for several days:
Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.

Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.

Does anyone have a recent offline backup copy please?

It already happened before, it went down for a while then got back up after a few days.
But yes, someone has to make an offline copy once it comes back up, shouldn't the site be gone for good one day.

Until then, it's not a pretty solution, but you can use the cache from Google itself, by making the search in Google, and check the cached crawled version instead.

Who runs the wiki? I would be happy to provide mirrored hosting.

You can still use Web Archive to view the website anyway.

In 2015 Wiki was also down, I asked Wormbo and he wrote: "Report it to the BeyondUnreal Staff, in particular SirBrizz.
You can do so either in the BeyondUnreal Forums or in the [url=irc://irc.globalgamers.net/BeyondUnreal]BeyondUnreal IRC channel[/url]."

It appears to be up for me. That being said, if you run into this issue again, use archive.org and you can find most if not all pages.

I'm not surprised to see Google refusing that "stuff". By accident have you seen the content ? IS TRASH, you can happily delete the crap and visit a doctor.
Alternate option, ask staff politely for an original copy - not that linked there heading nowhere.

Again this error. So I search and find this topic:
https://forums.beyondunreal.com/threads ... nk.205104/
On it present link to huge 814 MB file for offline copy at 08/2018:
http://medor.no-ip.org/index.php?dir=Tu ... 8-2018.zip

I download it and found huge useless files. So I make repack of this archive at 6 MB:
wiki.beyondunreal.com_08_2018.rar
(6.6 MiB) Downloaded 24 times
All still same except size.

Also you can use copy of 06/2007 with images:
https://forums.beyondunreal.com/threads ... nk.205104/
Repack of it:
wiki.beyondunreal.com_06_2007.rar
(31.67 MiB) Downloaded 11 times

Or use Wayback Machine like this:

Hello, I'm new here. I figured BeyondUnreal wiki website is often going down for long periods of time, so I decided to create unofficial mirror on github pages. I checked several existing versions of archive copy of this wiki, and seems like 2007 version is most complete. 2018 version has lot of broken links, and I couldn't figure out how to correctly restore 2017 version (mediawiki XML dump on archive.org). So I used 2007 version and slightly updated it (changed link in logo to local, removed external links to original site from menus, added link to complete-index to main page for better search, etc). I think such online mirror can be more convenient, than offline archive.
So, here it is: https://beyondunrealwiki.github.io/

Barbie, since this is static site, unfortunately search won't work. Closest alternative is complete-index page, that lists all articles with links to them, so you can search by title using browser search.
I fixed search button, so now it will lead to error page with link to complete-index, to avoid confusion. Also, when google will index all pages, i can probably replace it with google seach by site.
I also just fixed all old UDN links that were broken.

Probably worth mentioning that ividyon has recently hosted the wiki (2017 version) at UnrealSP.org :P

Link is here: https://unrealwiki.unrealsp.org/

You can't edit any of the articles, but it's still great to have it back as a handy resource nonetheless!
