I have this bash script, but it doesn't seem to work at the 'find' point.
#!/bin/bash echo 'What date YYYY-MM-DD format?' read date echo "starting restore script..." echo "Looking in /root/backups/dbback_$date/" cd "/root/backups/dbback_$date/" echo 'What search term for files?' read search echo 'What database am I restoring too?' read database count=`ls -l | grep "$search" | wc -l` echo "$count files found containing $search" find "/root/backups/dbback_$date/" -type f -name '$search*.sql.gz' -not -path '*livefiles*' | while read file; do echo "$file is being restored" gunzip < "$file" | mysql -u root -p* '$database'; echo "$file has been restored...moving on to next file." done
Between the find and the done - nothing happens, the last echo I get is
9 files found containing test
Please can anyone advise if I am doing something wrong?
