Phpbb2 Archiver

This tool moves topics from one phpBB2 forum to another based on date. It is most often used to move topics out of "active" forums and into an "archive" forum that is locked. This prevents users from posting to old topics yet keeps them around for users to find information from if they need it.
Instructions for Installation/Use: - You must have a shell account on the phpBB2 server in order to run this utility. Many webhosts don't have this ability, so doublecheck on this first.
- Log into the server.
- Create a new file in your text editor of choice. I prefer Nano myself.
- Cut and paste the entire script below into this file.
- Go to the top of the file and, under the User Configuration Section, edit the variables so they relate to your install of phpBB2.
- Save the file as a good name and exit your editor.
- Type: perl -c filename to ensure that your installation of Perl has everything you need.
- Type: chmod 755 filename to give the script permissions to be executed.
- Go to your phpBB2 forum
- Find the original forum you wish to move topics out of.
- Click on the forum so you're viewing it.
- Look at the URL bar of your browser. You'll see a section of the long address that has "?f=XX" where XX is a number.
- Write this number down. This is the ID number for this forum.
- Go to the "archive" forum -- the forum that you want to move posts into. Find its ID as well and write it down.
- Go back to your shell on the server. Type: ./filename OID AID XX units where OID is the original forum ID, AID is the archive forum ID, XX is the number of units you want to specify, and 'units' is the type of units to use. For example, to move all posts older than 3 months from forum 2 to forum 34, I'd type: ./filename 2 34 3 months
- You should see the script execute and tell you what it moved and didn't move. If not, something's not quite right.
- I'm fond of setting up a crontab to run the script automatically each night. If you want to do this, look up how to make a crontab entry and give it a shot.
