Static Backup (6 posts)

    Does anyone know of/use a utility that will created a static version of a WP site, suitable for archiving? Sadly, I need to take my WP site down, but would like to keep a backed-up, non-database dependent version of it for sentimental purposes.

    Why not do a local install of WP on your machine, and thereby have a "backup"?

    Becuase I'd love to have something I can throw on a cd and still navigate around (if possible). I don't necessarily want it to start up in the root of my local machine's web server.

    Perhaps this could be a solution?

    google up one of those web-whacker thingies and have it "spider" your site down to a local copy? The trick there is with all the various ways WP can show posts, you get a rather large static pile of pages. :-)

    Thanks for the reminder about that. I had thought of it before but it had slipped my mind. It's messy, but it should work for what I want.


    Thanks for that too. A little more work that I'm interested in.

    If anyone knows of a plugin that'll spit out static pages, please let me know. I'll keep an eye on this thread for a few days.
