comment Is there any command to show how much time your ubuntu is on?
@nyuszika7h You do realize this is the Ubuntu site, right? That said, I think it warrants at least a footnote mention.

comment How do I download a YouTube video?
Given that this is a script that only invokes wget (and exposes a completely different interface to the user), I would go with the youtube-dl answer instead. youtube-dl is much more powerful.

comment Data extraction from a text file using bash
Programs should be sent signals they can actually handle, in order to give them a chance to clean up. I don't know anything about MySQL, but this seems especially true for database-related processes. If SIGKILL is the only way to get a program to exit, uninstall it and find an alternative.

comment Rename /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow for security reasons
But that's okay because all the users with accounts on the server itself have no passwords, only SSH keys, and password information isn't stored in /etc/passwd anyway, right?
