    Wget doesn't work

    I often use wget to get any files from different hosting servers but today I tried to get a zip file to my VPS but it didn't work
    and alerting this
    -bash: /usr/bin/wget: Permission denied
    Why wget didn't work and what is that error?

    Hello,
    you are running wget with a user which doesn't have enough permission or there is an issue with wget package.

    If you are on debian based distribution you can use:

    sudo wget url
    Else you need to login as root to execute wget.

    I believe the destination server blocked this function from their server hence you can get any files from their server.

    Try to run this command and see if it helps:

    chattr -sia /usr/bin/wget
