Thread: Downloading Entire Sites

    Downloading Entire Sites


    I heard you can download entire sites through Dreamweaver or other Shareware products. Any help on how to do this? I am new to the game.

    Yes you can as long as you have the FTP url, username and password
    Well, FYI it cant be done that easily coz some webs contain secured files which hold important information of the users/web. If what you said can be done easily, I would have downloaded HSBC's web to my com

    Hi there,

    Yes, indeed it is possible to download a complete website with help of special software. This software makes it possible to watch the downloaded website when you are off-line. Be inventive searching for the software.
    B.t.w.: if the website uses DataBases it is not possible to download all content/databases because all links to the databases will direct to the original website.

    if you are a general page browser, you can download the static site using applications like internet explorer for viewing when you are offline

    You don't need Dreamweaver or anything to download a public site, as long as the pages are interlinked

    Get GNU wget -

    Then run:

    wget --mirror --convert-links
