Hello, I have recentlly been given access to a Unix based server in order to learn how to operate a Unix machine.. i have never used Unix before and am in need of a list of commands and there functions.. if you have one available please send it to me in .txt or wordpad document form.. thank you in advance.
My bad.. I reconnected to the server and it's OpenBsD.. Please.. if you have any info on basic command line algorithms please reply here or via email.. thank you again in advance
I would suggest buying a book like "Learn UNIX in 24 hours". Poke around on this site, I think there are links to purchase good books (which also helps support the site). There are hundreds, possible thousands of commands and each has "flags" which modify the way they act. Some of the basic one are;
man [command] - Gives a summary of the use of a command. For starters type
ls - similar to dir in DOS. List the files/directories in the current directory
cd - Change directory. Used as
cd .. - Go up one level
cd - go to my home directory
cd /path/to/directory - Takes you to the specified directory
rm [file] - Remove [file]
mkdir [directory] - Make a [directory]
aaaahhhhhh ok... so alot of the "good old DOS commands" work the same in the UNIX envirornment?
if (you are not satisfied with with these dos like commands)
The revenue generated from all referral book sales currently averages about $100.00 a month. I wish it was more, but it seems like book referrals only generate a very small income (and the forums use a lot of bandwidth). The traffic on the forums is higher than our normal business and personal traffic, so the SDSL link is often saturated due to forum traffic. If you have any suggestions appreciated, please post in the admin forum.
