    I have a customer who moved from his old provider and me and for some reason it seems they cancelled his FTP account and his website is still functional and accessable via web http://213.121.246.85 , so i'm wondering is there any tool that mass download the whole website so i can re-upload it to his new hosting?

    There's lots of software out there that will mine a site. I can't seem to remember one that's supposedly pretty good...something to do with a spider (black widow maybe?)

    Either way, I just found this at download.com in a very quick search. Haven't tried it myself though:

    My favourite is webcopier, I am using an old version but for the new/latest go to http://www.maximumsoft.com/

    Anyways, it wil take you time to learn how to use the software and to make your work easier, I have copied it for you(total=41 files, 885.8 kb)

    Just download and use winzip to extract it to your computer and upload it to your server. Make sure you upload it correctly for example ascii/binary mode, it would be easier if your FTP client has AUTO.

    Please note that I will delete it after 48 hours if I don't hear from you or immediately after you download it and post/contact me.

    its not working for me getting this error:
    Code:
     wget -r -N -l inf -nr http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    wget: illegal option -- `-nr'
    Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...
    Try `wget --help' for more options.
