    Form last many years, we all are using the cPanel, Apache servers and facing the wget download restriction issue, why we can't download the file more than 2GB via wget command. Like to receive some good suggestion from the cPanel engineers, if they can provide us steps to increase the wget download limit from 2GB to any higher values....

    Awaiting your reply.

    The version of wget installed on the system is provided with the OS from the OS vendor. We make no changes to it.

    I just tested on one of my own systems and I was able to make an 11 gig file and wget it.

    grimlock public_html # dd if=/dev/zero of=1GBfile bs=1000 count=11000000
    11000000+0 records in
    11000000+0 records out
    11000000000 bytes (11 GB) copied, 113.67 s, 96.8 MB/s
    grimlock public_html # mv 1GBfile 11GBfile
    grimlock public_html # wget
