Heya Pareshkp.

Not all systems come with wget installed, many prefer curl.
Bet you need to install wget first, or get used to curl.
But after 4 years at this forum, and since you work with servers, i wonder why you didnt know that yet....

In regards to your other two messages, please follow the forum rules and provide required information.

Thank you
