Getting static – with WordPress

As I moved to a new server recently, I decided to convert my blog which I had during my semester abroad into static HTML, as the blog itself won’t change anyway. The easiest way to do so was to download the original blog with HTTrack completely to my local system. This tool converts dynamic links into static, relative ones, which is needed in order to move the blog to a new location. HTTrack preserves the page’s structure completely and includes all files such as images. After the download was complete, I just copied the whole, static website to its new destination. Great 🙂
