Uses Of SSH Client Commands In Your Linux Server

Uses Of SSH Client Commands In Your Linux Server :

SSH allows you to connect to a remote computer – for example, your Web server. This protocol allows commands to be carried out on that computer, such as moving and copying files, creating directories (folders), and running scripts. A SSH client should be installed on your computer to be able to talk to the remote server.

A. The ls command

LS is stands for “list”. Ls helps user to lists all the files and directories in their current directory. User have to type ls and press Enter to find out a listing appear in the terminal window:

[email protected]:~$ ls
myfile.txt   myfile2.txt   mysite.com

B. The cd command

Cd stands for “change directory”. User can able to to move into and out of directories, much like double-clicking folders on his/her PC with cd command. Such as, if ownsite.com listed above is the directory containing user’s website, he/she can move into the directory as follows:

[email protected]:~$ cd ownsite.com

User can then do another ls to list the contents of the ownsite.com directory:

[email protected]:~/mysite.com$ ls
cgi-bin   htdocs   logs

To move back up a directory, use cd .. (“..” means “the parent directory”). After use this, user can be back in original directory:

[email protected]:~/mysite.com$ cd ..
[email protected]:~$ ls
myfile.txt   myfile2.txt   mysite.com

C. The pwd command

Its important to know your exact current directory. To find this out, type the command pwd (short for “print working directory”) and press Enter. The computer displays the full path to the current directory.

[email protected]:~$ pwd
/home/users/username/

D. The more command

To quickly browse through the contents of a text file on your server. Just type more followed by the name of your file, and press Enter:
