    ok guys, so i managed to make quite good looking site with weebly, but i don't like their footer advertising their service, and i don't want it to be hosted with them either, one prime reason being their servers are too slow, and would rather host it on my servers.

    how do i rip a site? I searched google and found all sorts of misleading info, any tips would be highly appericiated.

    I could copy it for you, I'd just do it from scratch and redesign the thing for you.

    Too bad that won't work for scripts and stuff.. it would only work for plain html sites.

    Home Page:
    1. First get the page contents with curl.
    2. Then do regex for stuff you want on the page, like this: IN PHP

    PHP:
    $pattern='/<title>(.*?)<\/title>/si';
    preg_match($pattern$data,$match);
    $title $match[1];
    Now you have a starting point, huh?

    There are some programs out there on the internet that can help you rip the html websites off such as drk-spider and other web spiders .To make it simple for you is to go to the source of the page and copy the source intro an notepad and after user the web-spiders to locate the css files and the pictures to rip it complete.[This rip is for HTML websites only ]

    As for the PHP and other web coded pages wickedguy given you a good start , but there are payd programers that can do the rip of the script.

    I may need something similar done, however what wickedguy said meant nothing to me. Any idea what it would cost for a paid programmer to do this? Just an estimate.

    Thanks for your reply. I have Winhttrack, but it doesn't work to get the script, or database files. I really need the script for a house swap site, and the only thing I can find is a paid script, however there are endless house swap sites out there, and I really don't think many of them paid for this script, and I don't want to either!

    I have already managed to rip the html files from one of the sites, but its not much good to me without the script, but thanks anyway for your offer.

    Thanks very much for your help. I read through the thread. I have tried with winhttrack but it won't rip the sript. I couldn't find webextractor on torrents, but did find an open source one which I have downloaded and am about to try. If not I will try the other one that you mentioned if I can find it.

    Your help is much appreciated :)

    Yup. The power of this cannot be underestimated IMO.
