I am using Windows XP and am trying to use wget to download all the pictures (and some other files) from my website which is going to be closed on a host in about two weeks (so I need to hurry).
I wonder why I can download specific files with no problem, but when it comes to downloading everything from that site automatically, it just doesn't work.
If try this line, for example:
wget –r http://*the site’s name*/ lang2.JPG
It works just fine: It create a folder (its name being the name of the web site), and downloads a picture (lang2.JPG) into it.
However, when I try this one:
wget –r http://*the site’s name*
it doesn’t do anything. I only get these lines in the command window:
HTTP request sent, awaiting response…403 Forbidden 2009-12-02 09:54:33 ERROR 403: Forbidden
Why is it so that when I download a particular picture from my site, it is not forbidden, but when I want to download all the files automatically, it is forbidden?
