I just installed
oh-my-zsh for the first time. I just want to know how can I modify the number of past commands that are remembered in history? Where can I set this setting?
You can set the size of the history file zsh uses with the
SAVEHIST variable. just put a line in your
.zshrc (found in your home directory) like
SAVEHIST=n to save up to
n commands in your history (replacing
n with a number of course).
By default, I think that both zsh and oh-my-zsh aleady has a line in your
.zshrc that assignes
SAVEHIST, so just change the number to one of your liking.
