Where Proxmox ISO Stored

How to use wget to download iso’s directly to proxmox 6.2-14. Here is the location for the iso file. There is 1 ISO – a Debian ISO that I uploaded to the GUI. Login the proxmox host via ssh. Now find the location as follows:

cd /var/lib/vz/template/iso
# ls -la
total 357384
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root      4096 Nov  1 08:41 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root      4096 Oct 31 16:35 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 365953024 Nov  1 08:41 debian-10.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso

Download ubuntu 16.04. You can also specify a directory for the file to download to, as well as choose a name for the download. Use the -O (output) option and enter the directory and file name after the URL.
