In this guide, you will learn how to install Wget. A free and open-source command-line utility for getting files from the Internet is called Wget (short for “Web Get”). It is compatible with a number of os, including Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Let us install Wget:

  1. Log in to your server using SSH.
