Can you tell me what this is in the area marked red?
If I want to change
/media/files/tb-prod/files to some other path, how would I do that?

files is a symbolic link to
/media/files/tb-prod/files. When you access
files or anything inside it, you'll really access the path under
/media. Symbolic links are made and updated using the
ln command. This link could have been made with:
ln -s /media/files/tb-prod/files files
-s means to make a symbolic link. To update a link, either delete the link and create it as above, or use the
-f option to
ln as well. If you are linking to a folder, you should include the
ln -sfn /a/new/path files
This will replace the link with a new one pointing at
-n option is necessary when linking to a different target folder to avoid creating a sub-folder inside that symbolic link and instead replace the symbolic link completely.
