General :: In What Order Are Files And Directories Copied When Using Cp -R?

Jun 26, 2011

If I execute the following command:
cp -R /myfiles /mydestination


If myfiles contains several sub-directories and files, in what order will they be copied? For example, directories might be named 0123a, 9993c, myfolder, xfolder.

They are not copied in alphabetical order OR in date order OR in the order they appear when using a standard ls command as far as I can tell, so what actually does determine the order?

Edit:
I am trying to determine the order that the cp command uses in order to determine how far along my copy command made it before it stopped. For example, I was hoping to be able to determine it copied 3 of the 4 directories successfully.

Programming :: Check That The Same File Exists Within Two Different Directories Using A Filename As A Variable?

Apr 30, 2010

I am in need of a way to check that the same file exists within two different directories using a filename as a variable. Here is the process which requires it: The script is reaches out (via ftp) and pulls down a file(s) and delete it afterwards. This is halfhazard because in the instance it doesnt pull down the file, yet still deletes it, we are up a creek. I am looking to pull it down to a temp location and then verify that file exists in the location in which it needs to be present to process before deleting it, adding a little extra layer for security. The script itself is finished.If I put a file name in manually it works perfect. I just need a way to pump the filename into the variable.

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 :: Comparing Resources Using Top?

Apr 6, 2011

Fedora 15 Alpha

3861 user 20 0 904m 128m 33m S 0.7 6.4 1:11.52 xulrunner-bin
1323 user 20 0 1555m 95m 31m S 13.5 4.8 4:06.87 gnome-shell
3494 user 20 0 1028m 50m 21m S 12.8 2.5 1:43.32 evolution

I just wondering what is the difference between RES, SHR, and VIRT.

1) The VIRT always seems to be higher. Is this using the paging file system. (virtual memory on the harddisk, the swap memory)

2) Is the RES memory the actual physical RAM memory?

3) Is shared memory sharing memory with other processes?

4) Just a final question. As I am running on a HP Mini 210, memory and CPU is a resource I don't have a abundence of. So if was to compare for example 2 difference browsers i.e. firefox and midora. What should I brench mark between to 2 to find what one uses less resources?

I came across comm and diff commands, am I looking in the right place or is there a much easier way of doing this?

General :: Can't Rename/move Files From OSX That Were Copied From NTFS

Jun 29, 2010

I recently had data recovered and it was sent back to me on what I think is an NTFS drive. I copied all the files over to a file share I have on a Linux box, that's ext4. Now I have that share mounted on my OSX machine, and I can't move or rename most of the files. However, in a couple cases I was able to rename a folder after the third try. Another time I was able to rename a folder once, but not again. All the permissions are showing up the same on the command-line -- I can't see any differences between the permissions on any of the files/folders. Note that I can create new folders and add files no problem, and then rename and move those all I want.

General :: Cannot Browse Files Downloaded Or Copied Across Network

Jan 9, 2010

I have ran into a permissions problem. It seems that any file I have created with Fedora I can browse to in Firefox. I cannot browse to files that I have downloaded from the internet or copied locally across our network. I changed file permissions to 755 and 777 for these files. I even thought that maybe it was the php file content that was causing the issue. So, I copied the file content from file 2 into file 1. File 1 was the file I could always browse to since I created it in Fedora. I could still browse to file 1 after it had file 2's content.

I look at the permissions and they appear the same for both files. I am not sure why I cannot open the other files. I downloaded phpMyAdmin. I cannot hit any of these files in a browser. I also copied some files from a a backup location we have internally. I cannot browse to any of these files either. I used chmod 777 filename. Even after doing that I could not hit any of the files. I moved the files into my document root directory ( /var/www/html ) and I still cannot browse to these files.

General :: Copied Files In Nfs Does Not Show The Right Time-stamp?

Mar 3, 2011

I have two systems running on linux. system one is running with RHEL 5.4/X86_64 hardware, system two is running with RHEL 5.3/i686 hardware. One filesystem is shared from system two and mounted as NFS on system one. Now when i do a copy from local filesystem to the NFS share from system one,it shows as follows

Quote:

-rw-r--r-- 1 xkinved rbak1 30 Mar 3 2011 king

But if i do copy with -p option then it shows right time stamp. Both machines are running with slight(minutes) different in time. Does this could be cause for this problem? The problem is happening while i do FTP from some other machines too.

General :: Generating SSH Key At The Console - What File Needs To Be Copied To Usb Drive

Feb 17, 2011

I've been giving the task to go to a Linux console as root. and generate a ssh rsa 4096bit key, and copy the private key to a USB drive.

1) What command should I use here? ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 ?

2) Do I need to append the new private key to the authorized_users file? Which file exactly must be appended there? Would this be sufficient?

mkdir -p /home/myuser/.ssh
cat id_rsa_LOCAL.pub >> /home/myuser/.ssh/authorized_keys

Should any special permissions be applied to this file?

3) Which file must be sent to my usb drive so that I can take it home to connect with?
