I am logged into a remote ubuntu server, and I accidentally erased the entire
/home/username/ directory for the current user. The only thing left is a hidden directory called
.gvfs. I don't need anything of the Documents/Music/etc.
Now it is not letting me cd into the
/var/www/ directory, which has permissions 666 and it is owned by the current user.
I am afraid to disconnect from my ssh session because I don't know if I will be able to get back on. Have I permanently created a problem? Is there a way I can replace the most important files to the /home/username/ directory?
** EDIT **
Thanks everyone for the help. I figured the problem with
cd into the
/var/www/ was actually my permissions in the
/var/www/ directory. It was set to 666, changed it to 755 and everything was good again. It doesn't look like anything systematic was ruined by deleting the contents of the user folder.
