comment Which is more widely used: chmod 777 or chmod a+rwx
What is the point in setting the others permission? If you are logged into the machine as the user, then surely you can just use the users permission?

@MartinErhardt I would normally just use 775 or 755 for executable files only.

Thanks for this. I guess that by writing it out in full (alphanumeric) will prevent people from asking what does the 7 mean, etc.

comment Why do we use double hyphen in “tar --anchored” and single hyphen in “tar -b”?
It is not specific to git or tar. Not sure what it means either, but I have seen it is on other commands too.

comment Running Apache server causing machine to run out of space
Thanks @UlrichSchwarz, but as this is not a production server and is only used for testing our software against, its ok to not have logging enabled - once the server is up and running, that's all that we need :)

comment Running Apache server causing machine to run out of space
Is there any way I can switch off logging on the server now? I commented the lines out in the httpd.conf file.

I have used top -i and have all the running processes, which is sufficient for me, as I have this machine on VirtualBox.

comment How to use top with only showing CMD name
Oops, I moved the X: COMMAND to the top of the filters list. It is now in the front of the list. But I can't filter it by only that one filename: afile

Should I use this command line: top oCOMMAND=afile? I tried that and got: top: unknown argument 'o'

comment How to use top with only showing CMD name
It looks like the PID's are changing, so maybe it is what you say then @MarkPlotnick, cuz when the PID changes, it means it has died and started again, gaining a new PID.
