Earlier today, I was asked if I could download an entire HTML based website. As it turns out, all it takes is one Linux command to download an entire site. So if you’ve got access to a Linux machine, you can try the following “trick”.
If you don’t have access to a Linux machine, try using a Live CD of Ubuntu and an USB stick. That should do the trick for you, as well.
1. Open a command line terminal
2. Navigate to the folder you want to download the site to.
3. Type the following command: wget –recursive http://www.domainofsite.com
Of course you’ll want to replace http://www.domainofsite.com by the actual domain of the site.
