Join Jon Peck for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing the command-line interface, part of Learning Linux for PHP Developers.
Now that we've logged in, let's…get ourselves acquainted with the command line.…Well, I've included a free quick reference with the course.…Sometimes it's helpful to just read the manual.…The easiest way is just to visit manpages.ubuntu.com…with a browser and search for a particular command.…Well, we've got a prompt and that's about it.…Let's take a look around.…Right now, all I can see is the command prompt which is pretty short.…It starts with a user name that I'm logged in…followed by the at and the name of the server.…There's a colon and then a tilda.…
Tilda in Unix-like systems means the user's home directory.…Home directories contain user data, settings and customizations and so forth.…The final character in the prompt, the dollar sign,…means that I am a normal user in the system.…There's another symbol, pound or hash for the root…user, which is the highest administrator user in the system.…Therefore, since the current directory is tilda, I'm currently in my home directory.…Where's that exactly?…To determine the absolute path name, I'll use the pwd…
The demonstrations are performed with the Ubuntu LTS distribution of Linux, but the skills taught here are also applicable to other Linux distributions. Every command is described in detail in context, and a comprehensive quick reference is provided for convenience.
