System administrators sometimes need a quick solution to patch-and-go so they can proceed to more important tasks. This is the short article explaining how we can download files using curl on Linux based operating systems from remote locations.
Curl is by default a part of the Linux systems and available upon installation fo the operating system. This makes it very convenient as there are no additional installations required:
bluegrid-edu:~# curl https://wordpress.org/latest.zip -o /var/www/html/latest.zip
This is the example for getting the latest WordPress version and placing it into the document root directory.
