Is there a backup of the data on the archiveteam.org website? If so where can I download it?

Two sets of backups of this wiki are available. There are backups done by the hosting provider (several, going back days and weeks as well as hours), which use the storage capability of the shared hosting to keep them automatically (no tape or disk backups being done as most people would think of them). There are similarly copies of the database kept going back months.

Additionally, an XML dump of the Mediawiki database (which can be imported into any MediaWiki software) is accessible at http://www.archiveteam.org/dumps. New backups are currently pushed out once a week (and will be increased if changes on the site require it). All images are also wrapped into a images.tar.gz file, although our entire images directory is available at http://www.archiveteam.org/images.
