Unhappy wget and redirection


Hi folks

Is wget support php redirection ?

I want to download htttp://www.nsbop.sux/download.php?id=333 , it redirects to htttp://www.nsbop.sux/staff/emoubi.tgz

When I execute:
wget -c htttp://www.nsbop.sux/download.php?id=333 it downloads the file staff/emoubi.tgz but with name download.php?id=333

How can I make wget to follow the redirections and save the file with his actual file name (emoubi.tgz) ?


Also I wanna ask can I download with links without opening his user interface ? Something like:
links --download htttp://www.nsbop.sux/download.php?id=333

wget -o doesn't work? Just a thought.

Good luck,

nope

I do not know the real file name of download.php?id=333. That's the problem, wget must redirect to the actual file and save it with it's actual name (emoubi.tgz in my example)

Right but with the -o option, you don't need to know the name, you just make one you like (-o is to specify the output name).
I don't think it supports PHP redirection, but I'm not sure. I don't see anything in the man, info, or FAQ about it.

Exactly. I don't want to specify a file name because I don't know it I'm talking about 10 000+ files.

Thanks for the answers anyway.

From manual:

‘--trust-server-names’
If this is set to on, on a redirect the last component of the redirection URL will be used as the local file name. By default it is used the last component in the original URL.

max-redirect

For security reasons, the distributions set max-redirect to zero. You may set it to 1 at the run-time like ....

wget --max-redirect=1 http://domainname.com/path/to/file/to/download

or you may add the following line at the bottom of /etc/wgetrc (the usual default location)...

max-redirect = 1
