Retreiving Site from Way Back Machine

by CashDoctor 8 replies
A fellow warrior pointed me to "thewaybackmachine" on the net and I found my old website.

What is the best way for me to upload the pages. There are over 100 pages. Should I go to each page and save in a folder? or is there a faster way. I am open to 1 by 1 but don't want to say "doh" afterwards when a couple clicks of the mouse would handle it.

Thanks

    Why do you want to upload your pages to the way back machine? It's crawler visit your site(s) automatically.

      Reverse. I am looking to download from wayback and then upload to my host and recreate the website.

      Was also thinking there might be some money. In finding expired domains and then checking wayback machine and a link checker. I am bringing back a site with 175 active backlinks and 125 pages of content, 4 year old domain.

      Not sure if any of that means a darn. But I figured I would bring it back up throw some adsense on there and see what happens.

          If you OWN the material in the wayback storage area, you can use it. If you just buy an expired domain and go back and get someone elses content, that is not allowed, legally.
          The original creator still owns the copyright to the material, even if you own the domain name.

            I believe the only way to download pages that have been archived in the wayback machine is to individually download them, manually. However, there are bound to be a ton of images missing, etc.

            If you own the website in question, you should have the files on your computer. If you deleted them for whatever reason, then as mentioned, you will have to get them one at a time through the archives.. and it won't be pretty.. you'll have archive script content, broken links and all sorts of stuff to weed through.

            Also, the poster who mentioned that if you have purchased the domain but were not the original creator of the design or content is right. You can't just download that stuff, and upload it as if it were your own. It belongs to the original developer UNLESS the person who sold the domain gives you full rights to use it. And if that were the case, it's likely they would simply send you the files..

            Best of luck.

              thanks for the info. Looks like I may have a project on my hands bringing this website back up. I am the original owner and it is my content. It was a pretty simple site in terms of graphics and links. Might not be to bad.

                there is software called Teleporter Pro, (as I remember)

                you can point that at a URL and it will dig down from that location and copy everything from that point to your hard drive..

                then you'd need to fix the html obviously, but would save you a lot of time copying each page individually..

                Most likely theres freeware out there that does this also..

    I use the Wayback Downloader where it recontructs the original website as it was, you don't need to fix any html. It's a pretty cheap service especially if you want many sites
