Request a gzipped response from a web server using Wget

To reduce download time, application servers usually serve content using gzip compression, if the browser supports it.

When using a tool like Wget to explicitly download an application's response, the server responds with the uncompressed version:

Copy
wget http://example.com/

If you are curious about the compressed file's size, pass the corresponding HTTP header:

Copy
wget --header="accept-encoding: gzip" http://example.com/

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for old versions of Ruby on Rails (3.2 and 2.3).
