Is there a way to get snapshots of websites and store on my server with CPanel?

    I want to be able to run an exe that will grab a snapshot of a website on the fly and place it on my webserver within my cpanel for my http://pixelspotlight.com/ website. Currently I am relying on a third party to do this and would like to handle this on my own.


    Any suggestions or help on this would be great! :)

    wget -m http://pixelspotlight.com

    will make a pixelspotlight.com directory which should contain a 'mirror' of the site.
    it can't track javascripted links, but otherwise it'll do what you want.

    man wget
    if you need more info.

    I think he wants a snapshot (ie JPG/PNG/GIF) of the rendered site, rather than just a copy of the html files.

    yes, a snapshot (jpg, png...) is exactly what I'm looking for.

    I currently use http://www.artviper.net/websitethumbnails.php to get my thubnails/snapshots... but like I said want to have my own local tool I can use within cPanel so I don't have to depend on a third party for this service. Any further ideas or know of anyone doing this within cPanel?

    Thanks!

    Yea, I get what you're doing.

    Trick is, the page needs to be rendered. Check out the mozilla project, I'm almost certain someone has made the firefox rendering engine into a separate binary, or that there's an option for firefox to do this. Sorry, can't remember exactly though ...

    There is an extension for FireFox called 'Screengrab!' that would do it local side
