What's The Deal?

SSH Commands started off as a dump for linux commands by the author, having a bad memory and sometimes went through long periods of time without having to work in servers so the information was pushed out. The commands used in SSH normally don't allow for much error so its good to have them on reference some where. From there SSH Commands was born.

Our aim now is to be a place beginners can turn to when they need help with basic SSH Commands, or that little reminder free of charge.


What is SSH?

SSH is secure shell, a tool used to connect and talk to linux servers. These commands aren't SSH commands as such, but more so commands that can be used in SSH whilst talking to the linux server.

Most of these commands presented are based around a Red Hat/CentOS operating systems. We don't warrant the accuracy or compatibility of the information provided here, instead provide information as a possible channel for new users, resolution seekers and more research.
