Download Recrusive Files Inside Index-Of in Linux Using Wget

I want to download recrusive files inside index-of in Linux using Wget without following the link in the directory index on my site to the parent directory. There’s a simple solution.

$ wget -r --no-parent --reject "index.html*" http://125.160.17.22/dokumen/IGN/Panduan_OpenOffice.org_2.0/

For me I have to pass the –no-parent option, otherwise it will follow the link in the directory index on my site to the parent directory.

So the command would look like this:

wget -r --no-parent http://mysite.com/configs/.vim/

Edit: To avoid downloading the index.html files, use this command:

wget -r --no-parent --reject "index.html*" http://mysite.com/configs/.vim/

The Parameters are:

  • -r //recursive Download
  • --no-parent // Don´t download something from the parent directory
  • -l1 //just download the directory (tzivi in your case)
  • -l2 //download the directory and all level 1 subfolders (‘tzivi/something’ but not ‘tivizi/somthing/foo’)

And so on. If you insert no -l option, wget will use -l 5 automatically. If you insert a -l 0 you´ll download the whole internet, because wget will follow every link it finds.
