Task 4: Running Your First Few Commands
I actually had to check the hint on this, as I didn’t know I could do it without the quotation marks on question one. The answer to the second question is written in plain sight, as seen in the image below.
Task 5: Interacting With The Filesystem
I have a tendency to think more complex than necessary, my first thought was – “WHAT? How do I find ALL the folders on the whole machine, it will take forever…”
Obviously, it was a lot easier than that 😉
I wasn’t sure if this was a trick question, so first I checked where I was, and then I checked the content of each folder
Since I ran the command pwd in the previous question, I already had all the information needed to run cat without moving
The answer here is the solution I used in the previous question
But let’s use the cd command as well
Task 6: Searching for Files
Before I ran the grep command, I made sure there was a file named access.log
Task 7: An Introduction to Shell Operators
By using the command echo I can write the content I want in a file, and with the output redirector > I can create the file with the filename of my wishes, “passwords”.
Following the questions, I added “tryhackme” to the file by using echo and the output redirector >>, which adds content at the end of the file instead of overwriting the content.
To see the content I used the cat command.
