Recursive FTP from linux command prompt


An interesting option I just came accross while trying to FTP a complete site down to my linux clinet from the command line

Instead of using the ftp client or mget etc

you can use

wget -r ftp://username:password@www.yourdomain.com/

But I think this may only recurse directories down to a level of 5

So using the switch -l 0

This solves that problem

wget -r  -l 0 ftp://username:password@www.yourdomain.com/
