How do you replace a deprecated application that was built on top of Microsoft Content Management System (MCMS) 2002?

You could recursively download the entire website and serve it up as static html pages. This is where you use a tool like wget.

  $ sudo apt-get install wget

or download the wget package via cygwin.

  $ wget -r -p http://mokhan.ca/

And there you have it. You now have a local copy of the target website.

If you notice that some content wasn’t pulled down, that should have been, it’s likely because the site has a robots.txt file at root that disallows certain urls.
