Downloading tarball


Never downloaded anything except with apt-get. I tried to do this download:

user@debian:~$ wget https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1g.tar.gz

--2014-05-03 11:55:08-- https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1g.tar.gz
Resolving www.openssl.org (www.openssl.org)... 185.9.166.106
Connecting to www.openssl.org (www.openssl.org)|185.9.166.106|:443... connected.
ERROR: The certificate of `www.openssl.org' is not trusted.
ERROR: The certificate of `www.openssl.org' hasn't got a known issuer.
user@debian:~$

Is this the right way to do a download of a tarball that an apt-get doesn't find? How do I get around the cert problem?

Also, where is the tarball placed?

Thanks.

I am on a server - Debian 7.1, so don't have access to browser. I guess I could download it locally and upload it to the server. Wonder where I should put it on the server to un-tar it?

wget has a --no-check-certificate option that you may like to try (see the man page for details).

You can put a tarball in any directory to which you have write access (e.g. your home directory). There's no special place to put them.

Thanks. That worked. I was familiar with the wget --no-check-certificate parameter, but didn't think of it.

user@debian:~$ wget --no-check-certificate https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1g.tar.gz
