Download links

Hiya! I’ve been using Openfire for a number of time units, and I’m generally happy with it.

But there’s one aspect that gets me raging mad: The upgrade process. Every bloody time there’s a new version, I have to dance with the automatic downloads. I’m not downloading via browser on the server; I’m not interested in a bloody automatic download pushed to my local computer. I just want a direct link I can paste into a shell where I’ve already typed "wget ". Doesn’t anyone else use servers for, you know, server stuff?

Please start thinking of server admins who just want to download a package remotely


There is a way to do this, you just have to be clever and see how the download page works. For example:

wget -O openfire-3.9.2-1.i386.rpm ‘http://www.igniterealtime.org/downloadServlet?filename=openfire/openfire-3.9.2-1 .i386.rpm’


You can also use a link like

wget http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/openfire___*.tar.gz

Should work with other installer variants. Or you can download it via browser on your workstation and put somewhere, where you can copy it from the server (SAMBA, SSH, etc.).

I have also removed stupid tags from your message.

Thanks, wroot’s answer is more like what I want. The /build/ link gives me a file with the right name right away

The download servlet mangles the filename, and I’m not wasting precious milliseconds on typing the -O flag

btw, this is preferred as it uses Amazon cloud


That builds URL wroot mentioned may get removed someday to save bandwidth.

As there is a problem with site’s certificate identity, one should use such command:

wget --no-check-certificate https://download.igniterealtime.org/openfire/openfire_3_9_3.tar.gz

Could we put this wget example on the download page? I also find myself often in the situation where I would want to grab the latest release from a CLI.

Ideally we would want host your own debian package repository that users can add to their apt sources.

Flow, sure, filed WEB-28 to do this
