Remove / Delete Directory and Its Contents in Linux

rm -rf

This command will remove a directory and its contents without prompting you to make sure you want to delete each file in the directory. Substitute with the actual directory name.

Changing folder ownership thru SSH

If you ever need to change ownership of a folder using SSH here is how:

You'll need to login to the root of the server, and then run the command

chown -R ownername:groupname /path/to/the/folder/that/needs/to/be/changed

The "-R" will make this a recursive ownership change, changing all folders that are included below the path you have specified.

MySQL Export/Import Command Line Syntax

If you are like me, occasionally you find yourself working with a database that is so large it's pretty much impossible to do any importing/exporting with the GUI tools. It doesn't happen often enough for myself to have the MySQL commands memorized, so I'm putting them here so I can find them again later.

Exporting using mysqldump

mysqldump –u mysqlUser -p DatabaseName TableName > FilenameToSaveAs 

Importing the same file

mysql –u mysqlUser -p DatabaseName < FilenameToImport
