Mirroring or Archiving an Entire Website
I have several old Wordpress sites lying around that I would like to archive but not maintain anymore. Since I don’t intend to create any more content on these sites, we can use tools like
wget to scrape an existing site and provide a somewhat read-only copy of it. I say read-only not because we can’t edit it, but because it’s not in the original source format of the website.
There have been several tackles to the problem:
And ultimately after consulting these resources I’ve came to the following command:
wget --mirror \ --convert-links \ --adjust-extension \ --page-requisites \ --no-verbose \ https://url/of/web/site
There were other solutions in that stack overflow post, but something about the simplicity of
wget appealed to me.
