Ubuntu :: Command Line To Copy Files From One Location To Another / Retain Source Files Group / User?

Feb 20, 2011

Is there a method at the command line to copy files from one location to another and retain the source files group and user?I'm migrating some MySQL files from one machine to another.I want to back-up the original files in the directory presently. They have owner:group of mysql, some have owner:group root:mysql and so on. To copy them under cli or Nautilus everything changes to root for I execute sudo cp or gksudo nautilus and copy via gui.

Since it is MySQL data I could simply do a dump of the database and restore it on the other machine. But there's about 20 db's and I want to do this via a copy for it will be faster - at least that is what I think.

General :: Joining Two Files From The Command Line?

Oct 21, 2010

I'm looking for a solution for the following simple problem. I have two files, fileA and fileB. Each file contains only one word per line, and they contain exactly the same number of lines. I would like to create a new file called fileAB, where the i-th line contains the i-th line of fileA, a Tab separator character, and then the i-th line of fileB. I know how to do it in Python or other scripting languages, but it would be nice to have a bash one-liner for that. Is it possible to do this in bash or any other Unix shell, using the tools that are usually available on the command line (e.g., sed, awk and such)?

Ubuntu :: Rescuing Files By Command Line Only?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 which appears to be completely wrecked. Even in recovery mode I can't get any GUI. The only access I can get is via command line, which with my limited knowledge of cd and ls commands shows me that the home directory is OK and all the data files present.

How can I get the data files off this machine, eg by copying them to a usb stick, or maybe by copying them to the Windows partition (which still works OK)?

Ubuntu Servers :: Execute .php Files From The Command-line?

Jan 26, 2010

Some time ago I installed LAMP in my server, but now I need to execute .php files from the command-line (in order to execute some manteinance scripts for mediawiki). Seems that the PHP files running in the server are run thru some kind of "module" in apache2. Can I tell apache2 to run a .php file in command-line mode using that php module? Or should I install a fresh copy of php-5? Won't that interfere with apache or mangle the system?

Ubuntu :: Move Multiple Files Via Command Line?

Sep 15, 2010

I liked the idea of the "cosmos" screensaver/desktop, but wanted to add my own pictures to the application. I navigated to /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos and tried to drag and drop. I quickly found that I did not have permission to do this.

I googled my problem and found some command line tutorials telling me to sudo cp. My problem is that I have about 30 pics that I want to move in there, and I don't think I can just move the directory, they have to be in that folder as the pictures themselves.

I don't really feel like typing the cp line multiple times with multiple randomly named image files.

Is there a way to have the command line cp all of my files from one directory to another?

Software :: Files Are Present In Gnome But Not There From The Command Line?

May 12, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 with Ubuntu 10.04 running. Recently I loaded from a storage drive all of my music library which happens to be in its orignal wav format. I was going to convert it to mp3 using lame or some other program. I worked with the files using the command line with some success. The files were there when I did this. No problem. I came back to the computer after several days absence and when I got to a commandline I entered "ls -l" no files. Yes I went to the right directory. I logged in as Root no help. The files are not there according to the command line as far as I can tell.Using Gnome the files are available and playable via the desktop. Are the files there or not?

Software :: Set Progress Bar On Moving Files With Command Line?

Jan 22, 2009

When I move files with the mv command, it simply waits until the file has moved and then the command prompt appears again. This is fine, but there are two things which are rather annoyingThere is no progress bar: When moving really large files, you have no idea how long the move is going to take. Is there possible to produce a progress bar to show how much has finished? You can't do anything while you're moving: You can't use the command prompt while you're moving the file/files. I'm currently not using a Linux computer (I'm at school) but maybe it's possible to write mv <file> <location> &, I just thought of that just now. Is it maybe possible to use another program than mv to move you files?

General :: Delete Files On The Command Line With Regular Expressions?

May 6, 2010

Lets say I have 20 files named FOOXX, where XX is the number of the file, eg 01, 02 etc. At the moment, if I want to delete all files lower than the number 10, this is easy and I just use a wildcard, eg rm FOO0* However, if I want to delete specific files ina range, eg 13-15, this becomes more difficult. rm FPP[13-15] does not work, and asks me if I wish to delete all files. Likewse rm FOO1[3-5] wishes to delete all files that begin with FOO1 So, what is the best way to delete ranges of files like this? I have tried with both bash and zsh, and I don't think they differ so much for such a basic task?
