Downloading Ignition on a Headless Server

I was trying to install Ignition on a headless Linux server today and ran into a problem where I couldn’t download the installation file. My guess is that the download link I copied to use with “wget” was rejected since it wasn’t being selected from the browser the got the link. Which is fine and all, but it was a hassle to download the installation file and then upload it to my google drive and download it from the the google drive onto the headless server. Is there a direct way to download Ignition directly from headless servers?

Set the referer to “https://inductiveautomation.com/downloads/ignition”:

curl -L -O -H 'Referer: https://inductiveautomation.com/downloads/ignition' https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.inductiveautomation.com/release/ia/build7.9.9/20180816-1452/Ignition-7.9.9-osx-installer.dmg

Got this when trying to download the 8.1.9 linux installer. It worked ok for the Windows installer, because I accidentally downloaded that one first. :roll_eyes: No big deal, as I can download it elsewhere and transfer it over.

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain
More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

No problems here… are you on a work network with a nosy appliance or proxy?

Work network. Old infrastructure, so probably noisy. lol.

Actually, I take that back. This is in a new facility with new infrastructure. Again, not a big deal, as I’m transferring it now.
