I'm on a VPS with CentOS 6.5

I was trying to install ASSP so by error i did this command

mv -f /* /usr/share/assp

and then I can't do anything

when I try something like:

[/]# dir
-bash: /bin/ls: No such file or directory

You could try

/usr/share/assp/bin/mv -f /usr/share/assp/* /

to move the data back.

In case that fails due to missing libraries, you could try to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the appropriate paths (it should be /usr/share/assp/lib or /usr/share/assp/lib64) or you could try to use a statically linked mv command (eg. the one provided by busybox).

You could also try to boot a rescue system image that has the mv command and then mount the file systems properly to move the data back.

  • Thank you i try to but i get this error -bash: /usr/share/assp/bin/mv: /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: Nov 30, 2014 at 20:35
