How to download a single file from local BitBucket server using cURL, not cloning the repo

I am trying to download a single file from BitBucket on the linux server. I do have access to the repositories when I try to access it from the web, so it is not permissions issue

I used to be able to use this command

curl --output <output-file-name> -u <userid> http://bbserver:7990/projects/prjname/repos/repponame/browse/configurations/infile.txt

Now, when I tried to execute it, it just downloads an html page

I also tried the below command using the raw path. This also downloads an html page

curl --output outputfile.txt -u <userId> http://bbserver:7990/projects/prjname/repos/repponame/raw/configurations/infile.txt?at=refs%2Fheads%2Fmaster


Another thing I tried was using Personal Access Token as well as Authorizatoin Header with Basic and base64 encode Id:passwd

All these trials return an html

What do I need to modify or look at ( or ask help from the linux SA to look at ) to be able to download the single file?

Also, can I download the directory - like `configurations` above instead of a single file.

Of course, I need to get the download of single file working to be able to go to the next step.

I have searched, but these are the commands I found to download a file from BB. Didn't find a solution for what to do when it returns an html file



Thank you
