I want to export my contacts via a script for periodic backups. However there is a problem with downloading my big addressbook (which is ~35mb)
when trying to download via script
- cannot download it with curl
- wget reports internal server error
when trying to download manually using the web interface
- firefox results in “File not found” error (after some time trying to download)
- chromium downloads successfully
I also have a small addressbook, for which the problems above do not occur.
How do I use wget or curl so that it downloads successfully as chromium?
FINAL EDIT: The
calcardbackup script also solves the problem by downloading the vcf file directly from the database with the -f option.
