download oracle db with wget function oraclelinux

edited Mar 3, 2015 4:42AM in Downloads Issues


I am trying to download the db to my oraclelinux that runs on oracle VM virtualbox with following command:

wget --no-cookies --auth-no-challenge --http-user="username" --http-passwd="mypassword" --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" ""

but instead of a jusy 2 GB file i get small file with some simple webpage saying that LOGIN FAILED.

I have checked my username (my email i log into oracle webpage as well and mu password) couple of times and also tried to ommit the "" signs or spell password instead of passwd.

Will appreciate any help

    If you have My Oracle Support access it has as document with similar topic. It is for patches and updates not base installers but I guess you can check how they use wget parameters there.

    Here it is the doc link:

      Using WGET to download My Oracle Support Patches (Doc ID 980924.1)

    The other possibility I would check that you can try to use links command line browser.
