convert php / mysql page to html
Posted by bschultz (bschultz), 20 June 2003I'd like to clean out my db's and convert all pages that call the db to html pages. Is there an easier way to do this than to call up the page in a browser and copy the info and paste it into Dreamweaver?
Posted by John_Moylan (jfp), 20 June 2003Hello Brian.
Do you have access to a linux shell? yes...good!
you can use GET or wget.
GET on the command line will spit the html that the page produced to the screen.
You can redirect this to a file.
[john@john john]$ GET http://www.sports.com/index_ie.php > something.html
somthing.html will now exist.
But better then that (I think) is wget.
[john@john john]$ wget http://www.php.net
The index page of php.net will be saved to your dir, all you need to do is rename the extention to html.
Im pretty sure you can pass in a command line option to wget to make it crawl through you directory tree, though would need to read the man page to check...but its a start I hope.
Posted by John_Moylan (jfp), 20 June 2003just looked, there is a -r (recursive) option to wget.
Final thought though, intra page/site links will still be to *.php, you will have to write a regex to replace relative links to .html, but thats another question
Posted by John_Moylan (jfp), 20 June 2003This will replace .php with .html on all relative links, it will leave absolute links alone.
Yes its in perl s/// but the regex is correct... I think.
(last edit....bloody smileys!)
