The script finishes the current item(s) and stops only after that. (If you kill the script immediately, the items get broken, and they will need to be reassigned to another user.) – Before starting the script again, don't forget to remove the STOP file.
 
 
 
If you see "Project code is out of date", kill the script, go to its folder (<code>cd rapidshare-discovery</code>) and issue <code><nowiki>git pull https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/</nowiki>rapidshare-discovery</code>. After the updating has finished, re-launch the script.

The number after <code>--concurrent</code> determines how many threads run at the same time. You can increase this number if your resources (RAM, CPU, bandwidth) are sufficient. However, if you constantly see messages about rate limiting, there is no need to increase the concurrency. '''When archiving RapidShare, don't increase the concurrency above 10 on one IP, otherwise you'll be banned.''' (10 seems to be okay, but the safe number might be lower.)

=== Donating to the Internet Archive ===
 
 
 
Content downloaded by the ArchiveTeam will be uploaded to the [[Internet Archive]], where it will be stored and be available – hopefully – forever. However, storing it costs thousands of dollars in the long run. So, if you can afford, please consider donating to the Internet Archive, so that this piece of history can be kept for us all. http://archive.org/donate
 
 
 
=== Do you like our cause? ===
 
 
 
If you want to help in other projects, want to learn more about ArchiveTeam, or even help in development in general, navigate to the [[Main Page]] of this wiki, from there you can reach a lot of information. The Team consists of volunteers working on the projects in their free time, so helping hands (and resources) are always welcome.

  • Get a list of valid download links from reddit. Done
  • Scrape Google with the keyword "intext:rapidshare.com/files".
  • Scrape URLs from the Wayback Machine. In progress
