Prevent Failed Downloads w/ wget
wget seems to have two options if you need to remotely download a file from an http(s) website.
- 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.
