How to download old web pages using wayback machine

A few months back, while I was trying to fix some issues with my WordPress database, I accidently deleted it 🙁

Luckily, I was able to download a copy of my blogs from the Wayback machine using the Wayback machine downloader.

Installation

Once you have downloaded the source code, go to the directory and run following command in terminal to install downloader:

gem install wayback_machine_downloader

Once installed, download the website using the following command:

wayback_machine_downloader http://example.com --directory downloaded-backup/

You can read my older posts here, they’re somewhat broken but at least I got my blogs back 🙂

Have a happy new year.
