    Most of the offline browsers out there that are supposed to download the whole thing seem to mess it up. The site I want has a lot of links to google video and those links don't work.

    This is what I want: download the site's directories, images, links, databses, etc. and then be able to over-write everything so it works perfectly when I upload it to my server it works fine and all of the pages link to my own site.

    Any software out there able to do this?

    You can not get the database out that way you need to "hack" into the system. Copy will only take the html and pictures text and so on.

    Maybe the video links are dead anyway? Have you manually checked a couple from the existing site.

    Hmmmm,

    Option A) Get r00t & copy the files associated DB
    Option B) Pay some Indians $5/day to create a clone
    Option C) The don't need to be Indian

    It works, my apologies. I realized i have the actual version, and not the trial version. You can download the real version, on almost every Torrent site. Wish you the best of luck :)

    I use Website Ripper Copier. It has done the job for most of the things I've needed.

    The problem is if there's any PHP code on the site. You'll only get the html output from it, so all the dynamic items will not work.

    just check the site out, and script something up exactly like it.. that could be very costly though.
    you could just get one of those programs like mentioned above, to scrape the content and
    set it up that way, but you will probably still need someone to code the administration section.

    go to freelancer then ask people to clone a site for you.
    price range $5 to $100.. depends on how hard the site was.

    I try to remind myself of the time it takes to step through code debugging someone else's problem. Better to outsource a clone if you really gotta have it.

    I use HTTrack and it works fine for the most part. Otherwise Freelancer is the way to go.
