Filesystem Hierarchy Standard

The current version is 3.0, released on 18 May 2015.[1] Directory structure[edit] The majority of these directories exist in all UNIX operating systems and are generally used in much the same way; however, the descriptions here are those used specifically for the FHS, and are not considered authoritative for platforms other than Linux. FHS compliance[edit] Most Linux distributions follow the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard and declare it their own policy to maintain FHS compliance.[9][10][11][12] GoboLinux is an example of an intentionally non-compliant filesystem implementation.[13] Some distributions that generally follow the standard deviate from it in some areas.

Easy Automated Snapshot-Style Backups with Rsync

That can be used instead of the separate cp -al and rsync stages, and it eliminates the ownerships/permissions bug. I now recommend using it. Also, I'm proud to report this article is mentioned in Linux Server Hacks, a new (and very good, in my opinion) O'Reilly book by compiled by Rob Flickenger.

Abstract This document describes a method for generating automatic rotating "snapshot"-style backups on a Unix-based system, with specific examples drawn from the author's GNU/Linux experience.

Regular Expression Tutorial

It starts with the most basic concepts, so that you can follow this tutorial even if you know nothing at all about regular expressions yet. The tutorial doesn't stop there. It also explains how a regular expression engine works on the inside, and alert you at the consequences. This helps you to quickly understand why a particular regex does not do what you initially expected. It will save you lots of guesswork and head scratching when you need to write more complex regexes. What Regular Expressions Are Exactly - Terminology Basically, a regular expression is a pattern describing a certain amount of text. This first example is actually a perfectly valid regex. \b[A-Z0-9._%+-]+@[A-Z0-9.-]+\. Learning the shell. Why do you need to learn the command line anyway?

Learning the shell.

Well, let me tell you a story. Not long ago we had a problem where I used to work. There was a shared drive on one of our file servers that kept getting full. I won't mention that this legacy operating system did not support user quotas; that's another story. But the server kept getting full and stopping people from working.
