    Try what they've given you with "ftp." in front of it

    Also may be worth going back to that tool and checking the settings you did, as I can 100% vouch for it working (on the old website it was flash, images, css, javascript) and it got the lot (although I had to change settings, perhaps if you PM me the web address).

    I have already tried this with this software package but it misses out the images and some of the pages from our site so i dont know exactly where the stuff is stored or how the crawler works as it is all in the same web directory. i suspect some of them are linked in by a CSS sheet some where to be honest.

    also they are supposed to be supplying me with ftp access but as of yet they have only given me a username and password and when i asked what the server address was he gave me the name of his web hosting company. is it me or has some one lost the plot.

    Hi,

    If it's just a plain old site you can just run a webcrawler to download all the css/html files then reupload on new host..

    HTTrack Website Copier - Free Software Offline Browser (GNU GPL) is what I had used when I had to do it at my old school.

    Thanks, John
