    What I want to know is why you're trying to cut and paste a website as opposed to just building your own. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    You need all files associated to the code in their proper folders or it will not work or look correct. Though I must say Copying a website = WTF

    If you have permission to copy it, why not just ask the owner (I assume that's who gave you the permission to copy it) to give you the files?

    This doesn't sound right at all, dude.

    First of all, a web page is usually comprised of several files and you can't just copy/paste it as a result. You need the code for the page, the images, any CSS / fonts / styles, the Javascript(s), etc.

    Second, no business owner with a clue would ever let anyone copy their site for any reason. That means that either you're dealing with a clueless business owner, you don't have permission, or you're in one of those MLM cookie-cutter get-rich-quick all-things-to-everyone-well-no-not-really kind of scam deal. Based on your answer here, I'm going with option 3. "Internet business" is usually euphemism for "I can get millions of people to sign up for the same offer millions of others are putting out there and I'm not going to say anything different about it because that's too much like effort". The "ASAP" and the lack of description of what you're really doing strengthens my suspicion.

    At this point, and you probably won't listen to me much on this, don't waste your time. Making a duplicate of a website doesn't do the person whose site you're duplicating any good, and it does you even less good. It's unoriginal and it serves no purpose. So whatever you're trying to do, learn to do it yourself and do it properly.

    Okay, so I was right. Is that the best you can do?

    Actually, this mother's calling you out!

    The Game gave you good advice, and really is trying to help you avoid what will be at best a waste of your time and energy, and at worst a loss of any investment you may be making.

    Your response to that is childish and indicates that you have no cogent argument to support your position.
