Find a File in Bash
If you are searching for a file in a bash shell, you first have to update the DB by running the command:
After that, you can use the command locate to search for your file:
Output should be something like that:
root@s001:~# locate v-add-letsencrypt-domain /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-add-letsencrypt-domain
Another option would be to use the command find:
find . -name '*.txt'
The command above searches the current directory for all *.txt files. If you want to exclude directories, add the parameter -type f:
find . -type f -name '*.txt'
If you want to search through all directories, you can use the commend below – but it may take some time, so better specify a directory:
find / -type f -name myfile.txt
