Wget

This is a tool which downloads files via HTTP, HTTPS or FTP.

Basic usage for wget


$ wget http://example.com

Use this if you do not want to check the https certificate. Sometimes you will get warnings such as:

WARNING: The certificate of `example.com' is not trusted.
WARNING: The certificate of `example.com' hasn't got a known issuer.

and no data will be downloaded. To ignore the WARNING and download anyway, add the "no-check-certificate" option:

$ wget --no-check-certificate https://example.com
