General :: Find & Replace String In Multiple Files?

Jan 15, 2010

After hours (literally) of searching the web and reading man pages, I think I've come up with the following:Code:find . -exec grep 'path/to/file' -print | xargs -0 -I new_path mv {this is where I get confused}So my code above is incomplete, obviously. In order to finish replacing the string, I need to mv the new file into the old file's spot. How do I do this, by incorporating it into my line of code?

Ubuntu :: Command Line - Find And Replace Text Within Multiple Files?

Aug 28, 2010

I'm pretty sure this is doable from the command line, but my CLI skills have degraded a lot since my pre-Y2K admin days. The goal is to search all the files in the directory for a very long string of text and replace it with another string of text. The text being searched for is my Google Adsense code (which will be stripped from my website) and it will be replaced with a placeholder so I can easily tack something else in there in the future.

Seeing how I have that long snip of code on about 100 pages, automating the process would make life easier.
If I was searching for a single word, I can see ways to do this.
If I paste the code I'm searching for into a text file, is there a way to:
find (contents of oldstring.txt) and replace with (contents of newstring.txt)?

I need to add "-nolisten tcp" to both of these lines and cannot figure out how to do it. I can get it to do the first one, but not the 2nd and so on. How do I search the file and loop though it to change them all?

Programming :: Replace Html In Multiple Files (80+)

Mar 2, 2010

I want to change some HTML in my files (80+ so I prefer not to do this by hand). I got a script to replace a string in files, however the HTML I want to replace contains an enter (and tab of 4 spaces) (explanation below) Does someone know how I could update my HTML by using a function in Linux?

I also found sed but don't know how to use it with the enter (linenumbers will not work because they variate)...

Programming :: Command For Find/Replace In Text Files (inc. Files In Sub-folders)?

Oct 11, 2010

I found this command that works great finding and replacing a simple string to another in files located in that folder and all sub-folders.

Code: find . -name '*.php' | xargs perl -pi -e 's/OldText/NewText/g'

The problem I have is that I need to replace a more complex string, like this: Old string: /mnt/stor6-wc2-dfw1/627896/982574/ New string: /mnt/stor8-wc2-dfw1/369587/302589/ There I don't know how to do it... since the / is what separates the old from the new strings, and the strings that I want to replace have / in it. Also, I would like to know how to specify under what folder replace the files, for example, I want that it search/replaces all files under /var/www/mysite/htdocs folder.

General :: Find And Replace Text From Many Files In A Dir?

General :: Awk / Grep Or Sed - Find And Replace Recursively From Files

Feb 12, 2010

I am new to linux as well as awk, grep or sed. I need a find and replace command single liner or script that loops trough input file (file1) and find the particular input in file2 and add "!" in front of the found string.

input file: file1
file2 (file that need to look for)

Output file (file3 should look like this)

I have tried many awk and sed method of find and replce but it did not work the way I wanted. This is mainly due to my lack of experience in awk and sed. The program should loop trough file1 and find in file2 and output in file3 for the 1st (g+h=o+p) set then repeat the same process again for set 2 (a+b=c+d).

General :: Find Multiple Strings Into Files?

Mar 22, 2010

I would like to find all the files that contains the strings I'm searching.

For example (it's just an example), I would like to search all the files in "/etc" that contains "eth0" and "us", whatever where are located those 2 strings, the important is that the 2 strings are in the files listed.

It would be something like a "grep -lr 'eth0' *" and "grep -lr 'us' *" but in one time/command, so that I don't have to make a comparison of the 2 list of files resulting from the 2 "grep" commands given higher.

Server :: Access The Log Files For Multiple Websites?

Apr 1, 2010

I have managed to configure AWstats to work from one server to access the log files for multiple websites on multiple servers and even managed to write a little front end php site to access all the different conf files. I want to know if there is a way of combing two conf files for the same site but are on two different servers in a loadbalanced situation. so my conf files look something like: [URL].. I have to monitor bandwidth for our websites and its gets tedious switching between the various conf files for the same site and totaling it up so I was hoping I could combine the output of both conf files on screen using some funky command in the script

General :: Replace Multiple Instances From X To Y In Line

Feb 1, 2010

I have a line of text with multiple web links in the line. I'd like to replace the actual links with the text "<web-link>" so I don't accidentally hit them while reading on my iphone. I've tried many versions of the following sed command, sed 's/(http.*)/<web_link>/g', but it simply replaces everything between the first instance of "(http" and the last instance of ")" with <web_link>, or does nothing at all.

Ex: This line has a link to a web page ( then some more text (extra text) and then another link ( to a website.
$ echo "This line has a link to a web page ( then some more text (extra text) and then another link ( to a website." | sed 's/(http.*)/<web_link>/g'

What I get is: This line has a link to a web page <web_link> to a website.
What I'd like is: This line has a link to a web page <web_link> then some more text (extra text) and then another link <web_link> to a website.
What am I doing wrong with my sed command?

Server :: Synchronizing /etc/hosts Files Across Multiple Servers?

Jun 16, 2011

I have 16 linux servers that use /etc/hosts files to see and talk with each other. I'm adding servers to this pool of servers. It is required to do host resolution via the /etc/hosts files. DNS or NIS are not alternatives. Aside from manually editing each of the 16+ /etc/hosts files every time I add a server or editing one /etc/hosts file on one server then scp'ing it to all the other servers, is there anyway to edit the /etc/hosts on one server and "push" it onto the other servers that need the new /etc/hosts file?

Everywhere I've looked on the Net, there hasn't been any suggestion except for the options I mention here.

Or am I just whistling in the wind?

OpenSUSE Install :: Replace GRUB With Multiple Distros

Jun 21, 2011

I have used the following

Code: #Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: none# title Ubuntu 10.04 booting via symlinks kernel (hd0,6)/vmlinuz root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST9500325AS_6VE3ZHX6-part7 ro quiet splash initrd (hd0,6)/initrd.img for Ubuntu for some time. Can this symlinks-booting technique (with the appropriate partition numbers/names) be used for LinuxMint and/or Fedora ?

Currently, I have one PC with Ubuntu's GRUB2 managing multiple distros (openSUSE 11.3 and 11.4, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Fedora) with Windows 7. I would like to replace it with the openSUSE GRUB, and the Ubuntu, LinuxMint and Fedora are rarely used.

Ubuntu :: Having OpenOffice Replace Multiple Words Simultaneously

Apr 27, 2011

I have a list of approximately 50 words that I'd like to search documents for and delete those words. I was wondering if there is some type of automated process for removing multiple words rather than me manually putting each word into 'find and replace'

On that note I guess I could write the Macro in python if there isn't anything out there that does this. However I read that open office only works with python 2.3.5 or something of that nature, and I have already installed 3.1. Is that still going to be an issue?

Server :: Deploy Updated .conf Files On Multiple Workstations?

Apr 28, 2011

we're about to migrate a set of workstations (ubuntu 10.04 LTS) to a new kerberos/LDAP setup. Basically, this requires the installation of some required deb packages and to copy some new .conf files over the original ones.We made a deb package having these "features":requires the needed other packages as dependenciesbacks up original conf filescopies the new conf files to the right places (i.e. /etc/krb5.conf,/etc/ldap.conf)The problem is: apt-get complains because the deb is "touching" files owned by other packages (kerberos, ldap, etc.). Therefore, the only way to skip this check is either to force apt-get to proceed or using the "replaces" directive in the deb control file, specifying the clashing packages. omething like this:

Package: <package-name>
Version: 0.9.9

Server :: Remove Dynamic String Across Multiple Lines And Files?

May 13, 2011

My server was hit with an injection script which has placed code across many of my clients files. I need a script that can remove a block of php code that spans multiple lines, multiple directories/files and is dynamic, meaning that part of the code changes. I think using find/sed is what I need but cannot seem to figure out how to get it to work.The following is the script that is being injected everywhere. The catch is that they have generated dynamic code at the start/end of the script. (I have commented the parts that are dynamically changing on EVERY instance).PLEASE NOTE: Directly following this script is the start of a valid php script that I do not want to delete.

//{{65281980 - DYNAMIC!!
GLOBAL $alreadyxxx;

General :: Emacs - Search And Replace Regex In Multiple Buffers?

Apr 7, 2009

I'm fairly comfortable with emacs but I can't seem to find how to do this. I deal with a lot of text files and find myself performing a lot of regular expression replacements to correct the formatting of the text -- or to extract certain tidbits of data from large ugly-looking files.

I know how to perform a regular expression replacement in one buffer at a time. But how do you perform a regular expression search and replace across all open buffers? I have found a method to perform a regex search and replace across a directory by marking files but I need to do it in the open buffers.
