Creating a static copy or archive of a forum

Has anyone ever created a static copy of a forum to leave online as an archive?

I don't want to make the forum read-only, I want to copy it - so it is still readable without relying on the database.

It seems like it should be possible, but I'm looking for tools and the only thing that comes close is a scraper like Octoparse, but configuring those things is like trying to fly a helicopter after enjoying 9 or 10 cocktails...

Could be worth giving way back machine a go. Results can be ok depending on the complexity of the site

Apart from licensing, why?
