Recommended Posts

Hi All,

When i try to use Wget to download all files under a directory of FTP, i found that only the list of directory was download. The files under the directory were not downloaded at all.

Here is the log.


D:\Builds>wget -r


=> `'

Connecting to connected!

Logging in as anonymous ... Logged in!

==> TYPE I ... done. ==> CWD chdir ... done.

==> PORT ... done. ==> LIST ... done.

0K ->

10:17:38 (155.27 KB/s) - `' saved [159]

Removed `'.


=> `'

==> CWD not required.

==> PORT ... done. ==> RETR ...

No such file `'.

FINISHED --10:17:38--

Downloaded: 0 bytes in 0 files


I have copied 5 files to FTP, and none of them could be downloaded by Wget.

Does some one know how to resolve it?

Sorry for bringing up a dead post but I would like to know what the outcome was on this issue.

You can do this several ways -- depends what you're trying to do.


The easiest way is to use scp instead of wget.


You could also use a bash script with all of the filenames in a textfile that you want to download. 


for f in `cat textfile`; do wget $f; done



Just found this.

wget -rkp -l3 -np -nH --cut-dirs=1
