one - rename directory linux
How do I copy folder with files to another folder in Unix/Linux? (2)
I am having some issues to copy a folder with files in that folder into another folder. Command
cp -r doesn't copy files in the folder.
The option you're looking for is
cp -R path_to_source path_to_destination/
destinationdoesn't exist, it will be created.
copy directories recursively. You can also use
-rsince it's case-insensitive.
- Note the nuances with adding the trailing
/as per @muni764's comment.
$ cp -R SRCFOLDER DESTFOLDER/
