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.
