Hello,

Maybe you can try wget.

Hope this helps!

Is wget a website copier or download manager? can it be installed without having a root access? does it have a gui version?

thanks

wget is a non-interactive website downloader. You don't need root access or a gui. Simply run with the --mirror option to copy the entire site.
ex:
$wget --mirror **broken link removed** ### squirrel Points: 2 Helpful Answer Positive Rating #### umairsiddiqui ##### Full Member level 2 https://www.httrack.com HTTrack is a free (libre/open source) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

Even if wget is not interactive, it is powerfull, more than any GUI windows based website downloader.
You don't need to install it, most linux distributions have it by default.
You can leave it running in background, or even keep it running after you close your session, using NOHUP.
Try wget --help to get a full list of options.

I recommend you to use the command line. It is much more powerfull than GUI interfaces.

Good look!

wget is excellent. if you're using windows you can use flashget with nettransport (which is a greate piece of software for capturing streamed videos)
