I am trying to search in the root folder that contains a bunch of Joomla sites inside subfolders to have a sneak preview of the
public $db variable of the
configuration.php file of each site.
Note that the whole
configuration.php consists of many such variables:
public $cache_handler = 'file'; public $cachetime = '15'; public $caching = '0'; public $captcha = '0'; public $cookie_domain = ''; public $cookie_path = ''; public $db = 'database_name';
I tried various options with grep, but either I get nothing or grep displays the contents of the whole configuration.php file of each subfolder.
grep -F -r "public $db" --include="configuration.php"
I suspect it might be related to the special characters in the search term, which somehow aren't treated as should, and grep finally searches for anything that contain "public"
-Whatever the case I need a bit of advise here on how to achieve this.
The final outcome I am after, is to get a list with the configuration.php files of each subfolder alongside with the whole line e.g. "
public $db = 'database_name';" of text where the
public $db variable exists.
/folder1/configuration.php: public $db = "db1"; /folder2/configuration.php: public $db = "db2"; /folder3/configuration.php: public $db = "db3";
