wget downloads empty pages


HI,when I run:
Code:
wget myhost.com:3000/rssfeed.php
I get a page of rssfeed.php in my root dir, whenever i run it once more, there goes a new rssfeed.php.0, rssfeed.php.1...etc, the number increases. but all of them stays empty, is there a tag that avoids this?
I am not sure which one to use on the man page, there is -o for output, but none for no output?
Thanks,
Ted

If the files are empty that's not going to be wget's fault. I can't see why that would be interpreted as feature in any possible way. Check the script on the server itself. Maybe add a -v for extra debugging info.
