I need to recursively download images from within a CSS file. This can be done with wget, http://wget.addictivecode.org/FrequentlyAskedQuestions#Can_Wget_download_links_found_in_CSS.3F

However as mentioned in that FAQ question linked above it requires version at least wget version 1.12 My Webfaction account has version 1.11.4

How do I upgrade?

Thanks!

You'll need to manually build wget into your home directory:

cd
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-latest.tar.gz
tar -xzf wget-latest.tar.gz
cd wget-latest
./configure --prefix=$HOME
make && make install

You might have to log out and log back in again to pick up the new binary.

Installing Wget

How do I compile Wget?


On most UNIX-like operating systems, this will work:

$ gunzip < wget-1.12.tar.gz | tar -xv
$ cd wget-1.12
$ ./configure
# make
# make install

If it doesn't, be sure to look at the README and INSTALL files that came with your distribution. You can also run configure with the --help flag to get more options.

See the RepositoryAccess page for additional requirements and steps to compile the source obtained from the source repository.

See on official website
