Installing wget on OSX

My parents have a dynamic website that hasn’t been updated in about 3 years. So I figured it was time to host their site on a less expensive static host… but first I had to download their static webpages!

I had heard wget was the program to use for that, but its not a standard OSX command line tool, so I found an excellent article to build it on my own machine.

Once I got that working i downloaded a static version of their dynamic site with the following
wget -m -p http://www.site.com/
