    Wow – nice idea Ryan… that’s really interesting! I’ve seen these before in blog posts (and even remember quite a few myself) but it’s great to have them all in one place to refer (for fun or whatever) to for sure! ;)

    very nice i have a virtual machine of all releases back to 0.7 (2003 i think) handy to login to see what has changed

    Nice idea. You can use wget to automatically create a static mirror of a website e.g.

    wget –mirror –convert-links –page-requisites –no-parent http://example.com

      Thanks for the tip. I didn’t realise wget could do that. Does it work better than just clicking “Save as” in a web browser? Because when you do it in Chrome it doesn’t work very well, and a lot of stuff ends up broken.

        I’ve had good results with wget before. The mirror flag turns on recursion so wget can save a whole website with a single command. This wouldn’t save wp-admin though (you would probably need to disable the login to get this to work but make a db backup first if you try this). Note: the flags above should be prefixed with a double dash. I think these got stripped out when I commented.

    nice to know how we come from to prepare where we’re going.

    This is an idea I had in mind for a long time, only did I want to provide real installations of these WordPress versions. The sites could be containerized or something like that. Also, I wanted to provide some more context about the versions (introduction, etc.). We’ll see how this project comes along. Maybe I’ll find time to contribute to it, too!
