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?
