/usr/local/bin/wget -p --mirror -k -t 30 -w 5 -e robots=off -o$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H%M).log "" &
Alternatively, if pulling down an entire directory, use the following (Note: _make sure_ you include the trailing slash on the directory name!):

Compress & Encrypt to Disk Using OpenSSL in Bash Without Exposing Password
View compress_and_encrypt-no_exposed_password.txt
# This is the simplest and cleanest way I've come up with for securely compressing (gzip, in this example) & encrypting data to disk with OpenSSL from a bash script without exposing the password to inspection of process or environment variable using `ps` and the likes. Naturally, `cat` is just used as an example so the data can come from anywhere. If the compressed data is to be sent via email instead of written to disk, don't use '-out' and use '-a' to base64 encode the compressed data.
# References:
cat "$file" | gzip -c | openssl enc -e -salt -aes-256-cbc -pass fd:3 -out "$file.gz.enc" 3<<<"$password"
# bash generate random alphanumeric string
# bash generate random 32 character alphanumeric string (upper and lowercase) and
