Move The Entire Contents Of A Directory Tree To Another Directory

Sep 18, 2008

I want to move the entire contents of a directory tree to another directory.

So for example we may have a directory with 15 directories inside, each directory contains files itself. I want to copy all the files from the directory tree into another directory located somewhere else one the file system. I want only the "files" to end up in the other directory and not the file structure too.

Im running CENTOS latest version.

Zipping The Contents Of Directory

Jul 28, 2008

Zip the contents of a directory (/path/to/dir/*) and then include a file in that zip that is located here: /a/whole/different/path/file.jpg. Is there a ZIP parameter that allows me to include that JPG file in the ZIP file that I am creating? Can someone give me the command?

Also, instead of zipping the contents inside of the "dir" directory, can I zip the "dir" directory itself but exclude the full path when creating the zip (/path/to/ part). I can do this with the -j parameter but when I do it also excludes the "dir" directory and only ZIPs the content inside of it.

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.

Move Directory To Another Server SSH

Jul 10, 2008

I was just wondering is it possible to move a directory to another server through SSH?

I bought a website a few weeks ago and I have all the files on the server except 30gb of content, now I've tried to put the folder into a tar archive but every time I try it brings up this error:

So I need a way to drag that folder from the old server to my new server through SSH because it will take me ages downloading and uploading all the content.

Home Directory Move Issue With Apache, CentOS 5

Apr 19, 2008

I moved the home directory for apache from /usr/local/apache2/htdocs to /home/username/www

When I go to browse the site, I receive a 403 error, You do not have access to / on the server.

It gave the OK default page for apache before moving so I am assuming it is a permission issue.

What do I need to do? apache is running as the default "daemon" user and group.

CPanel Directory / Sub-Directory Protection (Linux Shared Hosting)

May 31, 2007

I have a situation like this:

There is a directory say, "Master" and inside, "Master" there is sub-directory, "Slave". A user who has access to, "Master" should be able to access, "Slave" automatically. However, a user who has access to, "Slave" should not have access to, "Master". Inside cPanel this type of protection is not possible.

Directory In /tmp Deleted

May 8, 2008

the caching directory I created for eaccelerator deleted by itself. There are 2 copies of eaccelerator, one for apache and one for litespeed. The one for Apache got deleted today. Could it be due to the fact that the directory hasn't been modified or accessed in nearly 2 weeks? It's been that long since Apache was used.
