LXer: How to download recursively from an FTP site with Wget

Published at LXer:

In these days I had to download a lot of files from a remote FTP server, the best solution in cases like this one is to login on the remote server and do a zipped archive of all the files (for this use tar -zcvf archivename.tgz /path/to/archive/) , in this way you’ll have to download just 1 file that is also been compressed and FTP can do perfectly this. But this time I had no shell on the remote server, just a FTP account, so what’s the best way to download a large number of files recursively ?
