Linux how to stop  WGET from creating Directories

jags2ooo asked
Last Modified: 2008-04-03
Hi  when I use wget it creates basically the whole url structure  of the download

I need to know what command i can use to download a full directory without having the whole structure created

wget -R http://12345.com/Downloads/admin/season5

IF i use that command i would end up with  12345.com Folder, Downloads Folder, Admin Folder, season5 folder/files1.avi file2.avi etc

I have tried wget -nd http://12345.com/Downloads/admin/season5   does not work.
