I am a curious person who always likes to learn more. I like solving puzzles and I like working with computers. Which means I enjoy some of the more complex questions on this site, as well as the answers which go into details and explain all facets.

comment Revert moving root directory recursivelly
I disagree. Sometimes you do want to log in as root rather than learn to mindlessly put 'sudo ' in front of every command. However be careful when logged in as root. Especially with delete and move commands. --- Still, errors do happen and we learn from those. @MaxDL: Can you restore the / partion from a backup? Do you have backups? Can you use a Dell DRAC, a HP ILO or other remote access tool to access the servers console without booting the OS ?

comment How do I make a shell script in Ubuntu Terminal?
The exit vim, press the escape key to leave insert mode. Then type :wq (colon to enter command mode, w to write, q to quit). I noticed I left the : out of the answer. I will fix that. (Alternatively, any editor should do, I just used vim since it is my default editor. Vi(m) is very powerful, but it also has a steep learning curve.

comment Command to restore files from an unknown file format?
Ah, understood. No idea how to reverse this usage of dd though. -- For future reference: The usual way to do these kinds of backups is with tar. (tar cf backup.tar /home/xyz/parentdirectory). And tar xf backup.tar to extract it.

comment Command to restore files from an unknown file format?
"I zipped using the dd command" does not make any sense. Zipping (jn the sense, making a single [compressed] archive from multiple source files) requires an archiver program. Dd is a reblocker, not an archiver.

comment Exclude from * in command line
It is, which is why I did not post it as an answer. Merely as a less complex way of doing things (three very simple commands vs one somewhat more complex ones). I hate complexity in combination with rm.
