    Ok I just got scammed at Digitalpoint forum. That ****head took my money and only transferred the domain.

    It was processed on moniker.com domain escrow service. They did not even gave me an option unlike escrow.com to accept or reject, and NO inspection period. (Users BEWARE!)

    In the end, the seller went off with my money with absolutely nothing I can do. I can't do a charge-back on CC anyway either.

    What I need now is a website downloader to download all the files from MY website directly, if it is possible? Will I still get all the exact settings? I'm afraid some missing settings will mess up the SEO, and google will penalize me for it.

    Reasoning for being unable to do a charge back?

    yes it is possible to get the files. go to your url then view source code. in the source cod you will see the reference locations for all the images, and the css style sheet. All you need is the images, the html from the page, and the style sheet and you are good to go. It's easy. YOu will have to do somethings to make it work or your site but you will have the files. or just rightclick and save all the images to your directory, then go to the style.css location and also any other config files and DL them for yourself

    Using escrow, they only promise to broke the domain and not the website as a whole. Since the seller transferred to me the domain, the transaction is consider successful.

    It is a wordpress site with many inner pages. 200+ Is there a software (dont mind paid) to do the job for me?

    I don't know about a software that does that sorry . I did a quick G search but didn't find anything and Im quite busy right now.

    If it wordpress there are solutions for getting the text. It could end up being a pretty big job. If I was you I would be looking at how I could create a site to look very close and just save the images and copy the text like I told you.

    If you can find a webscraper somewhere you can scrape all the text from the site.

    Wordpress is database driven software so I dont really think you can download it. If it was plane html then its different story.

    Do you have access to the database at all?

    If not, you can use
    Code:
    wget -R http://www.etcetcetc.com
    
    and it will recurse and get all the pages. Unfortunately though, you will then have to manually create the page in WP yourself.

    Hello

    I suppose you do not have some custom scraper so you'll have to act fast. Do not search some tools from nowhere just act now. If these morons delete the whole website from the server you'll have to search the G cache instead of the live site

    1. make a list of all pages - use sitemap.xml site:domain.com or some crawler tool but act fast

    2. save each page as html on your hard

    3. try to make a list of all plugins - look the site carefully and open the html

    4. be sure that you have all images (save as folder)

    Do not waste time. After you finish you'll decide how to proceed with the scammers

    Good luck!

    Scraping a website is as easy as 1-2-3.

    But if he uses wordpress then it will only populate html which isn't good.

    Search HTTrack in google. It is a free software and can crawl and download all html files, but it can't download any databases or plugins

    You can do it, you will need to download you site using ftp client, and you will need to save you database from website you have. this way you can set up you site on other domain and hosting, if you google it you will find out, i did it with my wp site

    Im assuming he doesnt have access to the database and ftp from the original site, or he wouldnt be on here saying that he got scammed.

    oh yeah I forgot about plugins duhh. If you know how to view source for sites you will get the urls. type them in your browser and save or copy them all.

    Teleport pro is the KING of copying websites... But if it is a wordpress site, you're out of luck.. sort of. It pulls the data from a db, not using just html pages... Hope you can get this resolved somehow.

    can't you simply import all the post using something like feedwordpress?
    I mean go to the domain name and find the RSS FEED of that website... and just import it to FeedWordPress or CyberSyn or something similar...
