There are other questions asking how to enable gzip compression with wget, and lots of web pages out there telling how to do this, but I need the opposite. I'm trying to locally mirror a site, and I'm just getting the home page as a gzipped file, which in turn breaks the recursion, so I can't get the whole site.
I can gunzip that file, but that still doesn't give me a recursive download of the whole cotton-pickin' site.
How do I turn off or prevent gzipping?
EDIT: The exact command I issued is
wget --random-wait -r -p -e robots=off -U mozilla http://www.example.com --reject png,jpg,jpeg,gif --progress=dot --wait=7
