for i in {1..100} ; do wget http://url/$i.ics ; done

The ics files on the server are in format 1.ics, 2.ics, 8.ics, 27.ics....43.ics... and so on. It's egroupware groupdav folder for calendar.

using wget with
-r -l 1
you should be able to download the whole folder without going deeper than that.

if you have an idea of the format of the files (ie eventname_yyyy-mm-dd.ics or such) you could try to create possible combinations with printf and append them to the base url in a loop.

tnk, i'll try

I think you can modify the "wget" loop :
to loop on a variable from 1 to any number instead on arguments (you
should add option --tries 1 to avoid to be stucked 20 times on a file).

It should work, if names are simply "number".ics, but it won't be really

Otherwise, I don't really know wget/curl to retrive all files from a
server. Maybe you can find an index of files at some address (I don't
know if apache have a special address to display index) ?

is it possible to retrieve more ics from remote url/server recursively?
For example, on remote server I have ,, , but I don't have an exactly clue about the
name/numer of ics files...
the main problem to me seems to retrieve all the ics files stored on the remote server through wget/curl etc, without knowing exactly haow many they are and especially without knowing the name of every single ics file

thank you
