I'm a unix sysadmin, working as a consultant at Init AB (www.init.se).

Previous jobs include sysadmin in charge of security related systems at a large bank, and mail servers at a largish ISP, including handling abuse and spam issues.

comment How can I count all the files on my system from root?
@fraxture If a file name contains a newline character, wc -l will count the name as two lines. You could get around it using find / -type f -printf "%i\n" which will print out the inode instead of the file name.

Although, to be fair, the unixes 99 % of the people posting here use do... :-)

This is useful, but it should be noted that not all unixes implement the proc file systems.

comment What are the differences between creating a directory inside /home and /home/$USER directories?
If you've got SELinux enabled, it might. Solaris might, although it usually uses /export/home rather than /home, since it assumes that everyone's home directories live on an NFS server. HPUX can do it too, depending on configuration. In all these cases it's something that can be turned off.

comment Alternative checks for ensuring correct file usage
Or use md5sum or similar. If you want to check that the files are never altered on your server, use tripwire or similar programs.
