I've been trying to login in the pyload through the web api, but wget is not saving the cookies and I don't understand why.
I'm using the following command:
wget --delete-after --keep-session-cookies --save-cookies=my_cookies.txt --post-data="username=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD" http://localhost:8000/api/login
But the content of my_cookies.txt is:
# HTTP cookie file. # Generated by Wget on 2012-06-23 22:31:33. # Edit at your own risk.
When I run the same command but in debug mode I get the following output that includes the set cookie in the header response:

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
