Sometimes I just cant remember what to type.

ssh and run x appz

ssh -X then whatever

then while in command line run

yourdamcommand &

Linux SSH Saved Cert Upload and Login

It is usually a bad idea to do this...

ssh-keygen -t rsa
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/ '-p ***** webdawg@*.*.*.*'
alias torbox="ssh -p ***** webdawg@*.*.*.*"


  • bg

If you need to run a command in the background and do not have access to screen or a crontab then start the process and hit CTRL + Z. The process will suspend. You then need to use bg to resume the process. It will stay in the background and keep moving. The command accepts PIDS too.

If you have only ran/suspended one command then you do not need to specify a PID.

mycommand > log.log



Your command is running.


rar a -m0 -v4G output.rar INPUT.DIRECTORY
