Generate static html files from any website with httrack

I came across a need to take a cakePHP dynamically generated site and turn it into a collection of HTML files. After some trial and error I came across httrack which fit the need beautifully (thanks to this site for pointing me there.)

To install httrack run the following (for ubuntu-based distros)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/web
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install webhttrack httrack

Oncne httrack is installed simply launch it from the command line:

httrack

Follow the prompts and in no time you’ll have a folder with static HTML files for your entire website. Easy!
