Support » Fixing WordPress » How to archive a WP site?

  • Hi folks. I have a few clients that have passed away recently. I need to archive or snapshot their WP websites so that all the pages, posts, widgets, plugins and coding functions still work, but I no longer need the sites in WP format, don’t need the WP database, or wish to be notified of WP and plugin updates. What is the best or recommended way to snapshot their sites in their current working order to static HTML, CSS, javascript, etc pages?

    Any help is appreciated.

  • I’d try using the “Preload” feature in the WP- Super Cache plugin to generate static html files, but you would need to make sure that any needed css/js files enqueued by WordPress, the theme, or plugins are still accessible.

    I use free software called HT Track which creates a static version of any website.

    Being static, it won’t retain search functionality, but all browsing links should still work.
