For this task, I need you to mirror the following sub-section of a site for personal backup purposes: [url removed, login to view] This content will be disappearing in about 1 week, so this task MUST be complete by then, or you won't be able to complete it. You will mirror the files directly to my Linux server. I will provide an FTP/SSH login to you when I accept your bid. Hence, you should NOT need to download the files onto your PC at all--that will take far too long. There will be multiple gigabytes of files. My server has a 10Mbps connection, so downloading the files directly to the server should be much quicker. Your download must include: 1. All linked pages within /members/training08/ (plus any supporting files like images, stylesheets, etc.) 2. All non-HTML files linked to by any pages in /members/training08/. (Mostly, this will be movies, PDFs, and some other files.) Exception: You do NOT need to download the "HD" quality movies--this is in the interest of time. Most of the movies are downloadable. Some of the movies are embedded (YouTube) videos. You should of course only download the downloadable videos.
Since you cannot send me the site on RentACoder, I will accept the following as your deliverable:
The output of "du" in the home directory of the Linux server.
For review, I will verify that the file listing on the server looks like it contains the files for all of the training pages on the site. I will also randomly view a few of the pages and videos to make sure they were transferred correctly.
Remember, you're expected to mirror this content to my Linux server. You will have access to standard Linux command line tools and languages like wget, Perl, Java, etc.
You can do this any way you like. If you know of any automated Linux tools to do this, that would be great.
