    Need to locate all PDF files on web site, is there a tool?

    Hello,

    Is there a freeware/shareware utility available that will scan a web site and give URLs for document files such as PDFs and DOCs? Need to do an audit of files that have been uploaded to our intranet.

    Unfortunately when I search I keep getting anti-virus scanning tools in the results, which is not what I'm looking for.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Hmm, this is what I got when I searched for “website file indexing software”. I’m sure there is something among these results that suits your needs. You just need to know which keywords to use.

    Do you happen to be on a Linux server and have access to the command line? This won't help if you're just looking for an http solution, but will find files.
    Code:
    ls -ARl --group-directories-first /path/to/site/root/ |grep -i PDF
    The drawback is that it doesn't give a path, but if it's a Linux box, you can just use a locate filename.pdf to get the location.
    Are you a Help Vampire?
