Wacz file main page can't show dependent pages

I have created two warc files, which I converted to wacz files and have put on my website. These are hidden, as this is still in the testing phase.

If you go to

https://www.wticalumni.com/warc.htm and choose the link for “Link to WTIC wacz” it will take you to the problem wacz. The other wacz on that page works fine.

I can see the main page, but every link I try doesn’t work. A sample error message is:

This page is not part of this archive.

[Click Here] to load the live page in a new tab (or to download the URL as a file).

I’ve noticed that for some reason the URL it is pointing to is http while the entire website is https.

I use the following to download the warc file to my Mac:

wget --recursive --warc-file=WTICAlumni --user-agent=Mozilla “https://www.wticalumni.com

and the following to create the wacz:

wacz create -o WTICAlumni.wacz WTICAlumni.warc --url ht tps://www.wticalumni.com/

which I then upload to the web.

(I split the https word because I can’t post more than 2 links yet) :slight_smile:


I uploaded a slightly newer wacz file and now some pages load and others don’t. There is no problem with the actual website loading these pages.

I’ve just been informed that after updating a wacz I need to purge+reload the file. I’ve done that and all works great.

Glad you figured it out! Thanks for posting here for others to read if they run into something similar.

Glad to post. I know how tough some of these problems can be. Can’t take the credit though, been in contact with someone off channel who figured it out.

Off topic, but how come I can’t find a “solved” icon to click? Is it because I’m a “newbie”??
