Hello, I’m new to SSH. I’ve many files in a folder/directory. I would like to move all the files, not the folder/directory, to another already established folder/directory two levels down. Can someone give me the command line to get the job done, or direct me to where I can get the information? Thanks
You will likely be looking for the cp command (copy) unless you use the -R, it won’t copy directories (you could also use .)
cp * ../../
The above will copy all files in the current directory up two levels
Likewise, you can specify the location as well using
cp /path/to/folder/* /path/to/destination/
Hi cpradio, thanks for the different ways you shared with me to copy the files. I was able to do so. Thanks again.
