My bad... wget does require http or ftp protocol and a hostname that can be
resolved by the server.

Are you sure about that? I thought wget had to go through HTTP?

This didn't work for me, am I doing it wrong?

$ ls
cpanel3-skel    mail            public_html     tmp
cpanelbranding  public_ftp      test.php        www

$ wget test.php
--16:42:22--  http://test.php/
           => `index.html'
Resolving test.php... failed: No address associated with hostname.
