wget with variable in php

Hi,

I am trying to download a file but not getting any output

<?php
$url = "www.site1.com/image/gif//image1.gif";
$command = "wget ".$url;
exec($command, $op);
print_r($op);
?>
I am using Linux OS. wget is installed as I can download the same file using wget on command line.


Even copy is not working.
<?php
$url = "www.site1.com/image/gif//image1.gif";
$localpath = "/home/www/image1.gif";
copy($url,$localpath);
?>

2 things - you have a double slash in the URI and you need to add 'http://'

<?php
$url = "http://www.site1.com/image/gif/image1.gif";
$command = "wget {$url}";
exec($command, $op);
print_r($op);
?>

try using CURL if possible, because you may not have the luxury to have exec command on good production servers.
