I want to download
https://example.com using the
wget command, but it says “unsupported/unrecognized protocol”. I tried using the
--secure protocol='' but that does not work.
I downloaded the tar file from GNU wget and tried configuring that but I failed.
Here is an example of what I see:
bash-2.05$ wget https://www.facebook.com/ https://www.facebook.com/: Unknown/unsupported protocol. bash-2.05$
Hi folks thanks for the answers, the verified the version of my wget it says as below
bash-2.05$ wget -V GNU Wget 1.6 Copyright (C) 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

and I have no idea if my wget is compiled by SSL and the SSL is enabled or not.
Could you please let me know how to compile the
wget command. I tried running the
configure file and then typed
make command, that gives me command not found error. Even after running the configuration file it does not give me any
wget file created in
bash-2.05$ cd wget-1.10.1 bash-2.05$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-ssl bash-2.05$ make bash: make: command not found
the version I downloaded is
