I have a dump of the directory structure from an old Tiki website from around 2010 that is no longer up. I would like to view the raw text of the articles but am unable to locate any files that appear to be articles after browsing the directory structure. Where does Tiki store user articles in the file system? I found
lib/articles/index.php, but nothing appeared to be user added in there. Perhaps there were no articles, if so, how can I confirm that?
Alternatively, are the articles stored in the MySQL database and not stored as textual files? If in the db, is there an easy way to browse them? I'd rather not create a complete Tiki site and try to map these old file system into it only to discover that there was no useful content, so how can I judge how much content was actually added? Thus far, I've found one image file in
temp/CRW_0075.jpg that was added to the site, but that is the only sign of content I've located thus far.
My ultimate goal here is to assess if there is any useful information in this Tiki and if so, to extract it into a private MediaWiki I am helping to create.
