There is a community forum (running on the vBulletin board system) that
has a download section that i would like to retrieve all the files from
a section. Now, the only reason im doing this with wget and not
manually downloading them is because there is a minimum of 1 minute
between download times, meaning i would have to sit there and manually
download hundreds of files while waiting 1 minute in between (that
could take a while, also to note, none of the files are greater than
100kb so it wont be abusing the bandwidth of the site). I tried to
retrieve the cookie file by using:
All that, that creates is a file with the timestamps inside of it (not
saving the cookie information used to log into the forum). My plan was
to use that to retreieve the cookie, then use the --load-cookie function inorder to re-login.
On a side note, how well does wget handle urls that are formed like downloads.php?do=file&id=###? When you go to that url it will then propmpt you to open/save the file.
