Wget and Directory Names



This should be pretty easy to accomplish, but I’m a rooking on Bash and Wget.

Wget is a wonderful tool for server to server transfer, howerver, I could not manage some transfers where directories have some characters such as: ) (, for instance: wget http://serverexample.com/(upload)/finename.zip

Is there something I can do to bypass the error message and make my transfer on such paths?

Thanks in advance for any hint.

Cheers, zeca


Try quotes

wget “http://serverexample.com/(upload)/finename.zip

or maybe backslashes

wget http://serverexample.com/(upload)/finename.zip




Genius, I could make with quotes. You don’t realize how great was your help.

Thanks a million!
