Ummm, I think I had checked that option before posting the question
here but any ways thanks for this it is working.
What I still could not understand from the man page is
"Do not ever ascend to the parent directory when retrieving
recursively. This is a useful option, since it guarantees that only
the files below a
certain hierarchy will be downloaded."
Why do we need to use this option at all?
Can wget not go in subdirectories and download all of the folders below it?
