How to backup your website

Backing up your website does not have to be a difficult thing to do.  If you have a static website, the easiest way to make a backup is by using the open-source tool ‘wget’.

To recursively back up your site, including all of the images, execute the following at a command line:

wget -r -k -p yourWebsiteURL

After the application completes, your website will be replicated locally on your system, with all relative links converted to work from your filesystem.
