Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

For the life of me, I can't get wget to work on my system. I am trying to run a mirror of an existing project hosted on another domain. I would love to be able to simply download all the files in a given folder. Here is an example of what I see:
I can succesfully login using this user name and password any other time. I feel like a complete bonehead here... everything I read says "use wget, its easy", but it seems useless to me. I'm sure I'm just misusing it. Tips are appreicated.
I tried adding the -r extension and get the same error about access being forbidden. If I specify a page, e.g. www.mydomain.com/php/index.php, I get 4 files downloaded, all of which are linked to from my index.php. I have also tried several different options with recurssion level, getting page requisites, etc. and the max number of files it has ever downloaded is 5. Surely there is some way to mirror a web site!
I am having the same issue with a site I use. The site is a wholesale company that I use and I have full log-in access with a Username and Password. Is there a way to use WGET in conjunction with a password?
