You can backup a copy of an entire website and automate this process with a simple batch file (more on that later) and a piece of software named wget.
Wget will allow you to save a backup of every file of a Web site.
- Download Wget here
- Create a folder at C:\WebsiteBackup (or whatever and wherever you want to name it)
- Extract the contents of Wget into the folder you created.
Set up the batch file
- Open Notepad and type the following on the first line:
- cd C:\WebsiteBackup
- On the second line type:
- wget -r -k -p http://www.SiteName.com
- Save the file as WebsiteBackup.bat.
The file should look like this.
To run the file click on WebsiteBackup.bat. You should see the following screen - now wait as the website downloads.
You can automate this process if you right click on the file, create a shortcut, and put that shortcut into your “Startup” folder. Whenever you log into Vista/XP, a backup of a Web site will be made.
