Subject Re: Download set of files under a directory on a HTTP server?
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 20:17:54 GMT
HTTP is not a filesystem. Some webservers may be configured to present a 
filesystem-like view when a directory is selected, but that behavior is 
not part of the spec.

You may be able to use wget to solve your problem, but in general the 
concept of "downloading a directory" simply doesn't exist in HTTP.
