Apache Directory Listing – Download

Some Apache servers do activate the DirectoryIndex so you can easily go through the directories listing over HTTP and download some files. It’ s often used for giving possibility to people to download multiple releases for a package/software.
But in some cases, it can be useful to download the content of a full tree view.

This can be done by using a simple tool available by default on Linux (can be downloaded on Windows/Mac): wget

Let’s take an example!

Without proxy

We want to download all the files on https://pkg.mywebsite.eu/releases/ which contains all the latest releases of our preferred soft.

Here, we are using many options to say to wget what we want to do:

  • -rTurn on recursive retrieving (max 5)
  • -np : Do not ever ascend to the parent directory when retrieving recursively
  • -nH –cut-dirs=1 : Disable generation of host-prefixed directories, and remove 1 level (here, remove “pkg.mywebsite.eu” and create a “releases” dir)
  • -l 15 Change default depth for downloading to 15 levels (default is 5)
  • -R index.html : Specify comma-separated lists of file name suffixes or patterns to reject

With proxy

Let’s now add a complexity, this server is only available through a proxy to protect the content. The proxy is available on your localhost (127.0.0.1) on port 3128 (default port for Squid Proxy):

Here, we just added 2 options to be able to send exactly the same request but using proxy:

  • -e use_proxy=yesExecute command to enable proxy
  • -e http_proxy=127.0.0.1:3128Execute command to give URL to use for HTTP proxy

iTerm – Automatic mutliple panes with AppleScript

It’s often very useful to automate opening of multi panes with iTerm to execute many commands or getting access to many servers at the same time. This can be done through AppleScript.

You can copy this script and save it as multi-panes.scpt

Then, you just have to call the script directly:

And here is what you’re getting:
