    Download files from http server index.

    Hi,

    On a webserver where there is a large collection of files stored. They are stored just in a folder on a webserver, the webserver indexes the files. This is an example of what I mean (I just found this randomness on google): Index of /images/b

    Is there a way i can download all of the files at once without clicking and saving each one?

    Hope that makes sense?

    Thanks

    use wget mirror (or recursive)

    Code:
    wget -m Index of /images/b

    +1 for downloadthemall. It will also do video files, document files and so on.
