two days ago I had a big problem with my centos server. The problem was so big that I had to remove the hard disk from the server and connect externely with a SATA-USB cable. I created a Ubuntu live-CD, connected my hard drive externly and wooow, it reads it. The problem is that I can't find my real files and folders (e.g.bin, root, home, var,...). In attachments you can find a screenshot what it's into the hard drive. https://postimg.org/image/4crs2qpe3/

How can I find the right tree? Thanks Davide

    That looks like the boot partition, not the root partition. An explanation of this giant problem would be helpful. Commented Aug 29, 2016 at 18:40
  • Thanks. I try to explain. I created a software in java but if I don't start my wildfly service it goes into a infinite loop (bug). I created a sh file and into this file I insert the java -jar command. I put this sh file into the cronjobs task with the @reboot keyword. Now when I start my computer and the login window appears I can't perform the login. I'm sure the problem is related at this shell script with the jar file. The fan start to go very fast and I can't do nothing. This is because I need to access at the harddisk change the jar file name or disable the cronjob at start.

  • At login the wildfly service doesn't start but this isn't the problem. I haven't thought at this problem
