    Basic SSH commands

    Does anyone have a link to some very basic tutorials on ssh linux commands? Stuff like moving/copying files, creating ftp accounts, email accounts, new website accounts etc.

    Creating new website accounts without control panels? That's not really basic... Anyway, here is a good one.

    If you're playing around in shell the man command is your best friend. If you type:

    man cp
    or
    man mv

    it will give you detailed info on the cp (copy) and move (mv) commands. The only downside is you need to know the command name first.

    As Lev said, creating ftp/email accounts are more complicated depending on which control panel you're using. Some might not even offer the ability to do that sort of thing on the command line.

    Recommendation for an ssh newbie. Practice, practice, practice. Once you get fluent with the command line, you'll never want to go back. Things just start to make sense, and you'll love the power in the end.

    Btw, if you have a choice, I recommend bash as the shell to use.
