Convert Perl Site into Static HTML

The same way as you convert PHP site to static HTML you can convert any Perl generated web app. Just get Wget and run the script:

wget --mirror --convert-links --adjust-extension --page-requisites --no-parent http://www.yourdomain.com

Alternatively, you can use Httrack which has a GUI for Windows.

Reasons Why Make Page Static:

1) Save server resources
2) Defend against hackers and spammers
3) Make load times shorter

After your Perl site is downloaded and before you upload it back you need to rewrite all links so the don’t point at /page/index.html. Otherwise, you can loose Google ranks and confuse visitors. If you want to save yourself a hustle I highly recommend Dynamic Site (Perl) to a Static HTML Kit
