offline copy access? [Jun. 26th, 2007|05:06 pm]

Hi. I've just started using LogJam, as I'm sure will be made obvious by my following question. :P I'm running the latest version on Fedora 7.

I have an old journal which I am planning to delete in favour of a new one (don't ask why.. it's complicated :P), but I wanted to keep a backup of the old one, as there is stuff there that I want to keep but don't have saved on my computer. I thought the easiest way to do this would be to make an offline copy, but then it occurred to me that once I delete the journal, logjam won't be able to login inder that username anymore, and so I won't be able to load posts from the offline copy of that journal anymore. (am I right in thinking that?)

Anyway, I followed the advice from another thread and found journal.db ...now I'm wondering what I should use to access that? Trying to just 'open' it gives me the old "what would you like to open that with?" prompt. Also, if I were to start regularly downloading offline copies of my new journal, will it write over that one? (in other words, should I be making a copy of that and stashing it somewhere?)

Thanks for any advice.

logjam offline sync” will update the offline copy of the currently logged in user. You can then “sqlite3 /path/to/journal.db” and run SQL queries on it.

You should (I would think) still be able to select your profile in LogJam and read offline entries after you have deleted your account, but obviously you won’t be able to log into LiveJournal.

If you actually want to browse the SQLite db file, you may want to use something like sqlitebrowser.
