Simple Bash Command To Copy Only Directory Contents

Sep 15, 2007

Can anyone tell me a simple way in Bash to copy all of the contents of a directory (and only the contents), including hidden files, into another, existing directory?



# I have this directory structure
- directory_A
--- existing_file
- directory_B
--- some_file
--- some_subdirectory
--- .some_hidden_file

# I want to end up with this

- directory_A
--- existing_file
--- some_file
--- some_subdirectory
--- .some_hidden_file
- directory_B
--- some_file
--- some_subdirectory
--- .some_hidden_file

# I *don't* want this

- directory_A
--- existing_file
--- directory_B
----- some_file
----- some_subdirectory
----- .some_hidden_file
- directory_B
--- some_file
--- some_subdirectory
--- .some_hidden_file

So far I've been stymied in finding a simple way to do this from the command prompt.

How To Transfer Huge Files Without Shell Access

Feb 8, 2008

transfer a client's site files (over 220 MB) to my server. The client does not use cPanel or have SSH access.

FTP is horribly tedious. I have created the account on my server and have SSH enabled. I have a feeling I can use wget to download the files to the account's home directory, but I am not sure of the correct syntax to recursively download all the directories and the files.

New Files /home/virtfs Directory?

Feb 24, 2008

I'll mention this is a cPanel/WHM server with about 15 accounts on it.

I get an e-mail everyday from my server's backup script telling me what new or changed files it found. Yesterday this summary was massive, and it showed new or changed files in these directories:




The type of files it contains:


The /home/virtfs directory is something I haven't seen before, and it contained two directories belonging to two accounts on the server.

Does anyone know why these directories would be created or what they are for? The bit of reading I've done on this so far mentions that these directories will be created as a result of jailed SSH, but neither of those two accounts have ever had jailed SSH enabled.

Is Ufs Slower Then Ext2 For Lots Of Files In A Single Directory

Aug 23, 2007

We used Red Hat with ext2 as our file system on an old server with 100k+ of image files in a single directory. This seemed to preform ok until we switched to FreeBSD using UFS. Now images load very slow. I have read that Ext2 uses and internal hash to speed lookups, while UFS does linear searches for lookups.
