    Retrieving web site
    Is there any way to retrieve the website as it is on the web? I reformatted my computer and lost the most recent copy I had. I did have it backed up but the backup is a few weeks older than the posted site.

    Thanks!

    Liam has it. Your website contains all the files necessary to make the site work of course, so you can simply connect to it through FTP and copy all the files back down. The only files you'd have a problem with would be if you were using something like .Net and had compiled your source code into a DLL, but I'm guessing you aren't doing that. =)

    Otherwise, there is an app called sitesucker that will get all the html and images off a site

    But then, if I ftp the site I'll still have to rebuild it won't I? Won't that just give me my files and not the web page as originally constructed?

    Thanks!

    I guess it depends what you mean by that. If you pull in all the files and folders as it currently exists on the site, you'll have an exact copy of it locally. There's no need to 'rebuild' anything, since you should have a copy that you can then push back up to a new location.
