General :: Copy Mutiple Files Over Scp In One Command?

Mar 4, 2010

I have to transport a lot of files from one pc to another (both Linux). I would like to use scp for that, but scp only allows for transferring one file at a time. How can I do this?

I have No possibility to use rsync or any other protocol No possibility to use passphrase free certificates (but have a certificate with a passphrase) A list of files to transfer and a list with the destination path of the files on the other server The files are spread out over a lot of directories, and not all the files in the directories I want to copy If possible I would like to gzip and ungzip transparently to save bandwidth!

General :: Command To Copy Files Older Than <n> Days Keeping Dir Structure?

Jul 6, 2010

I'm trying to truncate a postfix Maildata directory for one of our users. I want to be able to move any files older than <n> days to a new location, but also copying the relevant directory structure. This should be doable in the one comman. I've used find to locate the files, and mv to move them, but I can't figure out how to build the directoryt structure on the fly in the new location.

This is what I have so far:

Code:
find /Maildata/editor -mtime +42 -type f -exec mv -v {} /EditorEmailOld/ ; > ~/editor.txt

Ubuntu :: Command With The -r Option To Compare A Large Number Of Files And Files In Subdirectories

Jun 16, 2011

I am using the diff command with the -r option, to compare a large number of files and files in subdirectories. My main interest is to find out which files have been changed, and not what the actual changes are, and since a lot of files has been changed, it would be a lot easier to view the file names only. Is there and option for diff that might do this, or does there exist a similar tool/command that could do the job?

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 :: Copy A Read-Only File And Make The Copy Writable With A Single Cp Command?

Mar 1, 2011

How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).

More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.

General :: Bash Dirs Command And +N Option?

Feb 8, 2011

I'm trying to use the dirs command with the +N option. The manual says: dirs [-clpv] [+n] [-n]Without options, displays the list of currently remembered directories. The default display is on a single line with directory names separated by spaces. Direc- tories are added to the list with the pushd command; the popd command removes entries from the list. +n Displays the nth entry counting from the left of the list shown by dirs when invoked without options, starting with zero.

dirs -v shows:
0 /dir1/
1 /dir2/
2 /dir3/

However, dir +n 1, dir +N 1, dir -v +n 1, dir -v +N 1 all give:

General :: When Extract The Tarball - Forgot The '-C' Option Of The Command 'tar'

Apr 23, 2010

I tried to install gfortran on my computer. When I extract the tarball, I forgot the '-C' option of the command 'tar', which should be added, according to the instruction of installation.

That is to say, I wrote in the mp directory:

Then, the tarball creates a '/usr' directory under '/tmp' directory, and it contains only a /local directory, which contains only a /gfortran directory.

The thing is, when I modify the name of this directory, for example, from /usr to /usr-modi, I found that the name of the directory /usr under the root directory is also changed from /usr to /usr-modi.

How can I delete this annoying /usr directory under /tmp, without tragically affect /usr under the root directory?

General :: Use '{}' To Redirect Output Of A Command Run Through Find's -exec Option?

Jan 10, 2011

I am trying to automate an svnadmin dump command for a backup script, and I want to do something like this:

find /var/svn/* ( ! -name dir -prune ) -type d -exec svnadmin dump {} > {}.svn ;

This seems to work, in that it looks through each svn repository in /var/svn, and runs svnadmin dump on it.

However, the second {} in the exec command doesn't get substituted for the name of the directory being processed. It basically just results a single file named {}.svn.

I suspect that this is because the shell interprets > to end the find command, and it tries redirecting stdout from that command to the file named {}.svn.
