Wget does not download files, although log says it did

I’ve started having problems downloading a warc.gz file. I check the actual website and the file is there, but when I try to find it in the warc.gz file of the complete website in replayweb.page it can’t find it. More interestingly, the log shows it was saved. I’ve successfully downloaded this site for months, but only recently has the problem started occurring. This is only one example of many:

Any help gratefully appreciated.

@edsu @hank You both were kind enough to work with me on an earlier problem, maybe you can shed some light on my current problem. Thanks.

Hi @DHK you mentioned that you are crawling it over time. Are you replacing the WTICAlumni.warc.gz file each time? I wonder if ReplayWebPage may have some data cached that is interfering with the lookup? Does it help if you delete the site data for www.wticalumni.com in your browser and try again?

@edsu I’ve deleted my Chrome cache as well as purging and reloading the file in ReplayWeb.page and the problem still occurs.

Even more interesting, I unzipped the gz file to the basic warc, and then used “The Unarchiver” to unarchive this back to it’s original file structure and the missing jpgs are available.

Can you share the URL for the WACZ file?

@edsu I can upload the wacz file, but before I upload a 16G file, I just discovered that my warc.gz file does not show a picture, but the wacz file I made DOES show it. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough storage to upload both wacz and warc.gz at the same time. What would you like my next step to be?

I’m confused, isn’t the WACZ or WARC data on the web already so you can view it with ReplayWebPage?

It was, until I discovered that the website that I thought had no quota, really did have one… I did some housecleaning… My current status is that the warc.gz seems to not be able to find pages, but when I make the wacz it does… It’s driving me crazy. Tell me what you want and I’ll upload it. Thanks.
