What's the best way to download an entire website (maybe 100 html pages) onto my computer? (It's not my website btw so I don't have ftp access).

wget is designed for just that: http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html

Obviously you need to be careful of copyrights etc. since it's not your website, depending on what you want to do with it.

If you prefer a more GUI based approach, I've used Teleport Pro with a lot of luck as well. But for simple sites, wget does a fine job and is free.

Teleport pro works very good for downloading sites with many files and large files which you dont want to wait for one then have to click on the next to download, I did this with soap's website getting all the videos. instead of it taking me days downloading 2 files at a time it was able to download 5/6 at a time and quicker in some cases.

It would depend on the website size, wget would work for simple/small but teleport pro would mostlikely work faster for a bigger site.

I found that Teleport Pro application, and it lets you have a 40 use free trial..

Now to have some fun.. Let's see what this thing can do.


Linkage: http://www.tenmax.com/teleport/pro/download.htm

edit: It works pretty good.. It has many options and lets you for example DL all the music type files (wav, mp3, aiff) from a website..

I should see if Myspace could handle a mass DL of all the filetypes music or video related..
I think I would either A) Kill my computer, or B) Kill Myspace..

In any case, it would be fun. :p

with the demo version you wont get very far, I ran it demo before I got my access code, then it works like a charm, it most likely WONT crash your computer nor another website, it simply goes into the file system and copies each file, little is required of the processor. Try copying myspace and you'll get all the files and videos which you select it to copy, or select all and it'll copy all :D

Don't know if you need this anymore but I've used this free program called HTTrack and it works nicely: http://www.httrack.com/
