Use wget Command To Download Files From HTTPS Domains

How do I download a file using https://example.com/dl/foo.tar.gz using wget command line utility?

GNU Wget is a free utility for non-interactive download of files from the Web. It supports HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies. The syntax is:

wget https://sxi.io/foo/bar.tar.gz

If you don’t want about checking the validity of the certificate just pass the option --no-check-certificate to the wget command-line:

wget --no-check-certificate https://sxi.io/foo/bar.tar.gz

You can pass the --no-proxy option to the wget command. This option tells wget not to use proxies, even if the appropriate `*_proxy’ environment variable is defined:

wget --no-proxy https://sxi.io/foo/bar.tar.gz

Set https proxy using httpd_proxy variable:

export https_proxy="https://USERNAME-HERE:PASSWORD-HERE@Server-Name-Here:PORT-NUMBER-HERE/"
export https_proxy="https://vivek:TopSecretePassword@server1.sxi.io:3128/"
wget https://sxi.io/foo/bar.tar.gz</kbd>

Or pass proxy server username and password to the server using wget command as follows:

export https_proxy="https://server1.sxi.io:3128/"
wget --http-user="USER" --http-password="PASSWORD" https://sxi.io/foo/bar.tar.gz</kbd>
