Resume interrupted download with curl

Last Updated Oct 05, 2016

Use curl -O (uppercase o) to donwload.

curl -O url

If the download fails for some reason, don't worry and be happy:

curl -L -O -C - url

curl will resume the process for us. Cool huh :D


In the pic above, we could see the filesize is at 3985664582 byte

When curl resume, it told us Resuming transfer from byte position 3985664582

But the demo server I use doesn't work with resume :(
