>How to Mirror a Complete Website Locally on Mac OS X

>

Do you want to mirror a complete website locally on your Mac OS X? Well, Mirroring the entire website is a very difficult task because the modern websites are so often built with ASP, PHP, CGI that update every page constantly and frequently produce URLs that are used only once. Now the good news is you can easily mirror a complete website locally on Mac OS X by using a terminal command wget. Now follow the steps to mirror a complete website locally on your Mac OS X.



INSRUCTIONS

STEP 1. Simply launch the Terminal.

STEP 2. Now replace the URL of the website you like to mirror locally using the following command:

wget -m http://www.guimp.com/

In the above case www.guimp.com is the URL of the website. You can replace it with the URL of the website you wish to mirror locally.

That’s it. Now the entire website will be downloaded on your local drive of your Mac OS X in a directory named the websites URL. In this way you can mirror a complete website locally on your Mac OS X. You should note that this is not an effective way to backup a website, and it’s functionality. [Via]
