Hi friends !

I am exploring Ubuntu. Long before one Ubuntu guy gave me Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Dapper Drake Server Guide in PDF format. But now, I want to explore latest Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron Server and I am looking for a PDF guide that I can download and print.

I am failing to get the guide in PDF format. I searched Ubuntu and also other sites but I don't know how to get it.

Regards.

Ubuntu has never built a pdf for Hardy. You have a couple of choices:

- official documentation (browseable on the web): https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/serverguide/C/index.html
  You can save a local copy of all pages with this command:
wget -m -k -np -w 20 --no-check-certificate https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/serverguide/C/


- download a pdf here (needs to register): http://www.pdfoo.com/linux/119-16509-pdf.html

Thanks for your comment.

Well...I registered on "www.pdfoo.com" but found that the link: http://www.pdfoo.com/linux/119-16509-pdf.html is NOT for a complete pdf for Hardy Server (It is just 6 pages manual)

For your first suggestion, let me apply it in practical and I will soon let you know about the experience and troubles if I face.

Regards.

Sorry for not being on the discussion for so long. I was sick and was not on my work. Now, I have come back and working on your suggestion.

Please give me sometime to explore it and I will soon let you know about my experience.

Hi !

I am back on the discussion. I applied your tips and noticed that it worked. I mean I could see the messages that the files (.html) are being downloaded on the Ubuntu Desktop PC (from the site). BUT...I failed to locate the location of the downloaded files. Means I am not knowing where it is downloading those html files ?

Again sorry for not replying instantly because these days there are two main reason. First I am not feeling well and another internet is also not regular at my place.

Regards.

The files are located in the folder from which you have launched wget command.

Yes...I could see all the files there in the said location.

Well...give me last favor. This seemed to me a very useful command. If possible, please explain me the structure of this "wget" command, its attributes (-m. -k, -np, what they stand for) and the parameters this command accepts.

Regards.

That's a matter of another issue. Anyway, wget has a nice manual. Type this in a terminal:

man wget
