    Wondering if there is such an animal?
    What I want to do is to retireve the numerous pages of a website as you
    would manually. That is, open a site, go to a certain page, then save it to
    your machine.

    Will it save the site's database as well?

    why? Guest

    Your question refers to the subject line? Then, yes there is.

    See past posts in 24HSHD
    several have been mentioned.
    Could be a bad idea and the server owner may file an abuse report with
    your ISP.
    Was that 2 questions or the same one twice?

    As for the site database, LOL, are you serious?

    Browse what you have in cache, there are a few apps for that as well as
    trying IE offline mode IIRC, not ever having used it myself.

    Yes I am serious about the database. I have contacted the webmaster and they
    have finally replied. With any luck, they may be willing to cooperate and
    let me have the info I need.

    As a database is mainly text, downloading it should be no problem. Even with
    a million plus records.

    Get them to burn it to CD/DVD.
    You are going to d/l it how? Usually a query on a web based form won't
    return that many records, even if it does all you get is the text form
    of the data mixed up with the HTML, after it's been processed by some
    script. What you don't get is the database, or the scripts and so on.

    Get them to burn it to CD/DVD.

    Not another 1, a database with 10^6 records

    HTTracker - I used to grab websites with it and put them on a CD for
    someone that didn't have internet access.
