I am going to be spending the next few hours working on a project. I will be searching the Internet for some tools to do some things I need, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to throw up a post here in case somebody happens to stop by the forums today and knows of some good tools.

I am moving an existing website to a "better" setup. I am creating a test server, production server, putting client-side files under FileHamster and server-side files under Subversion. Local web page editing will be via KompoZer and file transfer will be via WinSCP.

The existing website files include a bunch of junk. I want to point a program at the home page and have it download all of the files necessary for the site. I will then use only those files to start with. The rest of the files will be archived to CD and removed. I will then host only the downloaded files on the test server and I want to then run a broken image/link checker on the site to find and problems.

I then will set up Google Analytics for the site.

Additionally I want to find a web site/service that will email me if the site goes down and another to check all of the links/embeds and email me if any go bad.

I'm going to start working on this now. Any help with finding these things would be appreciated.

thanx,
tinjaw

Httrack is an excellent free website downloader. Sorry I have no suggestions on the link checker.
