Passing username and password in wget command

Filed under: Linux Tips & Tricks — Kunal Jain @ 08:53

To pass username and password in wget command so that it will not ask for the authentication use the following syntax

wget --user=userName --password=Password http://www.example.com/index.html

  1. Multi-character options in GNU utilities start with a double dash, i.e. the correct command would be:

    wget -–user=userName -–password=Password http://www.example.com/index.html
