Software :: Script To Find Difference In FTP / SFTP Directories?

Mar 8, 2010

I'm searching for a script which finds changes/differences in two (s)ftp directories. Not 100% sure if this is possible with just FTP or do I have to transfer the files beforehand?
Something like: ftpdiff user@host1/directory user@host2/directory.

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

General :: SFTP Chroot - Unable Move Directories To Other Locations Of The System

Sep 26, 2010

I tried setting up sftp for my users. Each of my user have their home directory at "/var/www/public_html/$USER". When my users are using sftp, they can only see their own directories and unable to move to other locations of the system. I followed through the following tutorials: [URL]

The users are able to sftp into the system successfully. However, they are able to see the whole system. Somehow, it appears that the users are not jailed in their home directory although in the tutorial it states otherwise. The difference of my system against the tutorial is that I am using Dropbear for SSH server while it is using Openssh server. Although dropbear does not support sftp, I am able to login through sftp through the use of sftp-server. For the internal mechanics, I am not sure how though.

Assuming that when I tried to SFTP, the sftp-server is ran with the sshd_config, then everything should be working fine right? Do i need to run chroot command at all? The following is the procedure I used to attempt the objective:

1) Add a new user to the group: SFTPonly
2) Chown user:SFTPonly user/home/directory
2) Modify the sshd_config to what is reflected in the tutorial and other paths.

Programming :: How To Find Directories That Do Not Have A Certain File

May 28, 2010

I'm having problems figuring out the process to find directories that DO NOT contain a certain file. I have a mp3 collection that all the album art is name "folder.jpg". Not all the albums have images. I need a way to find the albums/directories that do not contain "folder.jpg". I can find the ones that do contain "folder.jpg" with

find . -iname 'folder.jpg' -print0 | xargs -0 ls >> album_art

but that is as far as my bash-fu can take me. I'm not really sure what my next step is.

My directory structure is like such: a-z/artist/album/folder.jpg

General :: How To Exclude Multiple Directories In Awk With Find?

May 20, 2010

I found a script on webmaster world that mostly does what I need it to, but have been making modifications to tailor it to my specific needs.I know that //..*/ tells awk to ignore hidden directories, how do I define more directories to ignore? (i.e. temp, var, etc)? I've tried playing with prune before the awk command with limited success...I know that there are many ways to do the same thing and keep running into brick walls.

Software :: Using Find To Only Search Specific Directories?

Jan 9, 2010

how the "-prune" option works. I've searched quite a bit on line, and as far as I can tell, "-prune" works exactly the opposite as it says.

I'm using Apt-proxy, and I want to scan through the folders, and find files that end with "*.bz2" The problem is that the search takes a while because of all the "*.deb" files. Fortunately, they're stored in their own folder:

each have two folders:

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Find Any Difference Between The Systems

Jan 20, 2011

I have 3 pc's on home network. All dual boot Windows and Ubuntu. All have Samba installed, plus personal file sharing. When all 3 are booted into linux, all 3 show the public folders on all 3 pc's, but only 2 can access the other pc's folders.

I can't find any difference between the systems to explain why one pc (10.04) cannot mount either of the other two public folders: Unable to mount location. DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

even though their icons are shown in 'network'. The public folder on the troublesome pc can be accessed from the other two (10.04 & 10.10).

General :: How To Use Find To Copy All Found Files To A New Name In Their Same Directories

Feb 23, 2010

I've got a simple command that does almost what I want.

The following will locate all files with a suffix of '_compressed.swf' and copy each into its same directory with a '.bak2' appended:

However, I need to replace '_compressed.swf' with '_content.swf' I'd like to use find, rather than recursive flag on cp for consistency.

In: /content/somefile_compressed.swf
Out: /content/somefile_content.swf

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Action To Find Files In Directories

Aug 27, 2010

When I am in Nautilus, I want to be able to select a directory, then right click (or some other action) to do a file find on that directory. The gnome-search-tool would be a good candidate for this, if it could be an action in Nautilus. I know I can do a file find through other means, but Nautilus seems to be where I am when I want to search directories.

Ubuntu :: Find Files With Directories And Sort By Mod Time?

Dec 4, 2010

what i wanted to do was find all the files with a specific name from a tree, sort them by modification time and have their directory appended to them so that i knew where they were (because they all have the same name). i tried a whole bunch of different things and finally did this:

find . -type f -name world.sav -exec ls -l '{}' ; > ~/dfsaves.txt; gawk '{$1=""; $2=""; $3=""; $4=""; $5=""; print}' ~/dfsaves.txt | sort -n > ~/dfsavessorted.txt

this did the trick pretty well, but as you can see it is far from elegant and i think i'm doing some things wrong and kludgy

first thing i tried was "ls -lRt | grep world.sav" which worked except i couldnt distinguish the files because there were no directories. that took a lot of looking till i accepted i couldnt make ls print directories as well and append them to the files somehow that their relationship would be clear. i tried piping ls to find, doing it in reverse, passing them from grep etc. etc. until i read some more stuff online that got me using gawk and sort. the questions:

1. is there some other, more elegant and simple way to do this kind of detection and sorting?

2. is there any way to use a pipe after using exec? the semicolon seems to prevent this entirely, forcing me to use an intermediate file as above. i could just remove it later, but i'd prefer a straight piping.

General :: Script To Find New Files And Copy Them Into Different Directories?

Oct 29, 2010

I have a question which has been in part answered many times but nothing I found relateds completely to my situation. I am sure there will be people who will say RTFM but believe me I did, and searched as well but to no avail. I have a situation where I want to copy files created withing last hour in one directory into another one. The problem is that that the directories are on different levels in the dir tree so the absolute path is different. But I want to keep the relative path the same.

I want to copy new files from /mnt/path_to_webdav/user to /home/user. so if there is new file /mnt/path_to_webdav/user/doc/xy.txt I want it to be copied to /home/user/doc/xy.txt. Also if there is a new dir, say /mnt/path_to_webdav/user/newdir I want a new dir to be created in /home/user/newdir with all the files in it, should there be any. I can do find with exec and copy all the files into one directory.This is not what I want though. How do I preserve the relative path and get the files copied into their corresponding directories?

General :: Make All Files Non-executable Recursively Using Find Without Affecting Directories?

Sep 26, 2010

I need to strip the executable flag from all files within a certain directory and sub directories. Right now I'm doing it with a 2 step process

find /dir/ -type f -exec chmod ugo-x {} ;
find /dir/ -type d -exec chmod ugo+rx {} ;

Is it possible to modify the first line so that I can strip exec flag from all non-directory files? Since this needs to be done on a fairly regular basis across a lot of directories and files, I'd prefer not to use a bash script which would slow it down.

General :: Back Up Scrip - Find / Cp / Md5sum / Rm - Move All Files And Directories

Oct 22, 2010

I want to move all files and directories that are 1 month old out to back up into a separate folder. There will be a lot of files and I want to make sure it copies properly. The problem I'm having is integrating a MD5SUM into it to check integrity. MD5SUM is not recursive, so I figured it would work in a loop when it copies each individual file, I'll do a md5sum on each file and delete that md5 once its verified it copied ok.


I also need some sort of error handling to output all md5's that didnt pass the hash check.

Ubuntu :: Bash Script To Recurse Directories And Exec Ffmpeg Using Find (possibly)?

Oct 3, 2010

I wrote a script that easily runs it in the same directory as it was run below: #for f in *.MTS do ffmpeg -i "$f" -acodec copy -vcodec libx264 -threads 2 -deinterlace -vpre slow -b 20000k -bt 3000k -refs 4 "${f%.MTS}.mp4" ; #done

I want to be able to use the find command so it will recurse through all the videos in my videos folder. Is there a painless way to do this. Here is the start of my find command but it doesn't work. Any help appreciated:

find . -name "*.MTS" -exec ffmpeg -i 'basename{}' -acodec copy -vcodec libx264 -threads 2 -deinterlace -vpre slow -b 20000k -bt 3000k -refs 4 'basename{%.MTS}.mp4'

General :: Connect To An SFTP Server From A Windows Machine To A SFTP Server Using A DSA Key?

Jul 24, 2011

As a Windows user, I generated a pair of DSA keys from CoreFTP Lite and sent it to a third party that runs an SFTP server. They told me that a valid DSA key needs to have ssh-dsa at the start and the username@systemname at the end. CoreFTP generated neither the ssh-dsa header nor the username@systemname footer. I tried with WinSCP and it didn't generate them either. Is there a difference between how SFTP works between Windows and Linux? If I put a useraccount@systemname at the end of the text will it work? How would the Linux system validate that my system is called "systemname"? If it can't validate, what is the purpose of adding it?

Networking :: Find Out What Is The Difference Between Wifi0 And Ath0 (atheros Wifi Card) In Terms Of Packet Counters Shown In Proc/net/dev Pseudofile

Aug 20, 2010

I'm trying to find out what is the difference between wifi0 and ath0 (atheros wifi card) in terms of packet counters shown in proc/net/dev pseudofile. The fact is that wifi0 and ath0 packet counters are different. I've read that wifi0 refers to the physical device and ath0 refers to virtual device over wifi0, so, as far as I know, packets counters in both devices should be the same, isn't it? Another annoying question for me is that ath0 doesn't show any erroneous packets, while wifi0 does.
