Running wget in background with continue
Prevent Failed Downloads w/ wget wget seems to have two options if you need to remotely download a file from an http(s) website. 1 nohup wget -c -q 'https://domain/path/to/url/file.tar.gz & nohup - run a command immune to hangups, with output to a non-tty: essentially this just prevents the command from ignoring ‘hangup’ signals and continue running. -c = Attempt to continue the download. -q = suppres wget’s terminal output. & = put the job in the background.
