Endless downloading loop

Hi,

when downloading our website there seems to be an endless loop where OE is downloading the homepage over and over again while the cue is not getting smaller but is growing.

Any ideas?

Can you please try to uncheck the "Suppress server error" and "Check files integrity" boxes in the Project Properties dialog - Advanced section?

Best regards,

That didn't change anything...

Can you tell me the page address you are downloading, so I could test it?

I tried to download it, but didn't notice that Offline Explorer loads the same page again and again. Can you tell me, if this page address is different every time or it is absolutely the same?

It is always http://www.amaxa.com

I checked this issue. Please remove the username/password from the Password section of the Project Properties, because this causes Offline Explorer to check all HTML forms and to get all their parameters. The URLs are the same in the queue, but their POST parameters are different.

Please use the tutorial for the password-protected site download:

Authentication in a Web form.

It is easy to download this type of site.
You need to browse to the logon page of the site using the internal Browser of Offline Explorer Pro .

If you need to download the site immediately and only once, you can proceed with the logon and begin downloading the desired pages using Offline Explorer Pro . The program will use the session cookies of the logged on site from the internal browser.

You can also record the logon form contents in a Project, so that Offline Explorer Pro will know how to log itself on whenever you wish to download the site. This is useful when you want to schedule the site download or perform it later, or if you want to update the downloaded site in the future.

Once you have entered your username and password on the logon page in the internal browser, press and hold the Alt + Ctrl keys on your keyboard, click the Logon (or Submit) button in the Web form and release the keyboard buttons. You should get a new Project that contains the Web form information recorded in the URL field.

Adjust the Project settings as you wish (set the Level and other parameters) and click the OK button to save the Project. You may begin downloading at any time.

Note: The form recording method is supported only in the Pro and Enterprise editions of Offline Explorer.

Oleg.
