rida@rPC:/var/www/html$ wget https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/releases/download/3.4.3/Joomla_3.4.3-Stable-Full_Package.zip

Output is :

Joomla_3.4.3-Stable-Full_Package.zip: Permission denied

Cannot write to ‘Joomla_3.4.3-Stable-Full_Package.zip’ (Success).

Looks like you're in the /var/www/html folder, and your user doesn't have permission to write files there.

Change to some folder in your home (for example cd ~ ) and try again.

Or if you really really want to write to the /var/www/html folder, prefix your wget command with sudo

Or better yet, next time just search for wget permission denied and you would've found this very very similar answer Getting 'permission denied error' with Wget (and I wouldn't have been bothered typing this ;-)

  • You're welcome, actually on the StackExchange sites (like here) selecting an answer as correct (clicking on the check-mark) and/or up-voting (clicking on the up-arrow) is the preferred way to say "thanks" or "that's the answer". And practice searching for related words, like "joomla ubuntu wget error" or anything similar, and any error messages, it's usually faster too – Xen2050 Mar 8 '17 at 14:48
