Common Shell Commands

I've put together some of the useful shell commands that are available under WDLXTV (using SSH or Telnet). They're organized alphabetically, so you can easily find a command, their description and how to use it. This guide will continue to be updated and if you would like to add to this guide, please edit after checking the command yourself.

  • ls : list files/directories in a directory, comparable to dir in windows/dos.
  • ls -al : shows all files (including ones that start with a period), directories, and details attributes for each file.
  • cd : change directory (ex: cd /usr/local/apache will go to /usr/local/apache/)
