At the following link you can fin a list of commonly used linix commands you need to run a MineOS server: http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/admin.shtml
Albeit this is a good start, but there are many more that a beginner would need. I’m not saying I’m any good, and there are commands that I didn’t know.
I would like to add:
cp - copy a file – syntax
cp /path/of/original /path/to/destination
mkdir - make a directory
free - displays memory usage
man - show details of a command – syntax: man ls
There are many more, and maybe others could add???
If you read through the ingress you would have found the following with links:
"NOTICE this is only ONE of several Linux command lists.
Also read our Beginner Linux commands and commands for files and directories:
Commands to improve Linux server performance
Linux network administration commands
Beginning Linux Commands
Files and Permissions
Commands for Guru-Wannabees"
So the list in that page is only one of many pages on that site;)
