Thread: mirroring of a php website for offline viewing

    Default mirroring of a php website for offline viewing

    Hello,

    is there a way that I can archive an entire website (to a local drive) that makes heavy use of php so that I could view at a later time OFFLINE?

    I tried wget with no luck.
    thanks

    You can use any system to download, even wget or save a complete site with the webbrowser but you will not be able to view PHP webpages which are saved offline in a folder on your computer.
    You always need a PHP backend system, meaning you have to install a LAMP system at least and put the downloaded site mirror in your LAMP webserver root to view it from there with a webbrowser.

    If u just want to browse the site ofline wget can usually do the trick but HTTrack is more easy to use. HTTrack Website Copier - Offline Browser

    I did find that...
    Question: which linux variant do I install?
    also will I still need to install LAMP as per LREs suggestion above? or will the httrack make an automagic conversion to html?


    regards, and thank you for your response

    I think I used the tar.gz file and compiled it. ( I do not have it installed now). Pretty straight forward if I remember correctly!

    the command line version has a nice wizard.

    Good luck!
