How to Install & Uninstall HTTrack Website Copier on Mac

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility. It allows you to download any website from the Internet to a local directory on your computer.

It automatically arranges the original site’s relative link structure. Simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link as if you are viewing it online.

HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable and has an integrated help system.

Install HTTrack on MacOS

HTTrack requires Homebrew. If you already have Homebrew installed on your Mac, then proceed. Else, check this tutorial first: Install Homebrew on Mac & Fix “Brew: Command Not Found”

Finally, to install Homebrew run the following command:

That’s it!

You can use HTTrack by using the command httrack in your terminal window and hitting Enter/Return.

Uninstall HTTrack From Mac

Then open Terminal and enter the following command:

brew uninstall httrack

and press Return/Enter.

  1. i have a problem how to use it, please show me how to use it on youtube or the video, give me the link or email me on
    Any help would be appreciated

    • That’s the actual step to install httrack. It’s asking for the password because Mac requires root password to execute any sudo command just like Linux.

  2. After install it show me httrack not found Please help.
    Error is mention below

    Installation successful!

    ==> Homebrew has enabled anonymous aggregate user behaviour analytics.
    Read the analytics documentation (and how to opt-out) here:

    ==> Next steps:
    – Run `brew help` to get started
    – Further documentation:
    Maxs-MacBook-Pro:~ max$
    Maxs-MacBook-Pro:~ max$ httrack
    -bash: httrack: command not found
    Maxs-MacBook-Pro:~ max$
    Maxs-MacBook-Pro:~ max$ httrack
    -bash: httrack: command not found
    Maxs-MacBook-Pro:~ max$ httrack
    -bash: httrack: command not found
    Maxs-MacBook-Pro:~ max$

    • That simply means it’s not installed properly and that’s why it’s saying “httrack not found”.

      You can safely ignore that Homebrew Analytics warning.

      Reinstall the dependencies using the first command and then install HTTrack using homebrew. Restarting your Mac also helps sometimes.

      Let me know if it still doesn’t work! Good luck 🙂

    • When it asks for password, write your Mac’s password and press enter. It won’t be visible no matter how long it is. If your mac has no password, simply press enter.

    • Enter httrack in the terminal. Replace with the address of the site you want to download.

      Or, enter httrack –help to list all the available commands.

  3. Im stock in the Step #3
    Run the following command to install HTTrack:

    I put this commmand in terminal :
    brew install httrack
    And I get a : Command not found
