I am looking to mirror a website (a service listing a big database) with a local database of the information of a database and download all files. The service is very slow and prone to being unavailable during peak times (i.e. office hours when we need it) so being able to obtain it out of hours ready for when needed is really important.
I don't really have any requirements to what web scripting language or database software you use. If it does the job and can be accessible either on Linux or Windows that is good.
It needs to be able to do a daily check (date based search) to get updates. I also need to backfill all available information from the past... this needs to be done over long extended periods of time such as broken up over say 3 months so this can be realised.
The files to be downloaded are hexadecimal based file names which need to be saved as something more human understandable such as the reference number and increment number.
If you are an expert at web scraping please bid on this project.I must stress this needs to be a simple solution where there is no simultaneous downloads, a short pause between requests and the expectation that every few requests may not be available first time so the script would need to retry (not always the service going down, sometimes the file is inaccessible). Feel free to message me for the link so you can understand the site in question.

I can create web scraping program which will retry on the error, use delay after each request and save each file with the name you want. All I need to start is target site URL for testing. Thanks. Roman
