this is my first time posting here.
I am trying to create a script to automatically download certain files via Unix wget (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wget) from the Church website. I have the url for the files and just accessing the url will download the file if I am authenticated.
However, when I try to access the url and I am not authenticated, two things happen: either I am redirected to the sign in portal (which is logical), or I get a page stating the link is unavailable along with an error code (I believe it's 21-0909). When I try accessing the link via wget I always obtain the html file with Unavailable. I have tried providing the --user and --password flags to wget with my ldsaccount credentials but I still receive the same Unavailable response.
Has anyone tried downloading content that requires authentication via wget? How can I get this done?
Thank you very much.

I'm not sure what files you're trying to download, but if you have to be logged in, then automatic retrieval is probably not supported.
