When I SSH into somewhere, I see something line this in the terminal: [504]%

Looking it up, looks like its my bash shell history. How can I disable this index display and show the current working directory instead?


On the target system (the one you SSH into), find out where the bash variable PS1 is being set (grep PS1= .bash*), read man bash, the PROMPTING section, and set PS1 the way you want to.
