Copy The Entire Website Using HTTrack Website Copier

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Last week, I went to my parent-in-law hometown and I spend few days and night over there. Spending the holidays time in my parent-in-law house is quite relaxing but unfortunately that house is not equipped with the wireless Internet facility. Because of that absence, my web development task that require me to access the Internet have to be postponed. I need the Internet facility in order to find the information and guide related to my task.

In order to overcome this problem, I went to my brother-in-law’s house just to use his Internet Streamyx facility. Using his Internet Streamyx facility I try to find out any freeware that can copy the entire website which I need to use as a guide when develop my online web-based information system.

Fortunately I found the very useful freeware named HTTrack Website Copier. 


Click Here To Download


It is the free offline browser utility that allow you to download the entire website from its server to your computer hard disk. When I said the entire website, it mean you can download all its related files such as images files (eg: jpeg, png & gif), html files, php files and javascript files. Besides that, this freeware also can copy and arrange all website links that connected from one webpage to the another. So, what you will have is the mirror website which you can view its pages from link to link, same like you view it online.

I just tried but it only downloads the home page.
I've read the whole tutorial again and followed step by step, but again, only the home page.
Is there any way to force the whole site download?
