what I'm trying to do is download a whole web archive using wget. When I put something like wget (website link) using HTTPs, it doesn't download everything, but when I put a specific file name, it downloads it.

Is there any way I can have the terminal try every possible combination, each ending in the file type, so that it downloads all the good stuff I need? Apparently, when I don't be specific, it refuses the connection.


From Snipperize:

wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links restrict-file-names=windows --domains website.org --no-parent www.example.com/foo/bar/

  • What didn't work? Did you get an error message? – Donarsson Feb 24 '14 at 0:34

  • The url you provided doesn't work. – Donarsson Feb 24 '14 at 0:37
  • I meant "minecraft.net/skin/" apparantly, it was a typo. – user245115 Feb 27 '14 at 1:51
