    linux find help

    I am trying to find "php.ini". So I do the command:

    Code:
    find / "php.ini" 2>/dev/null
    It is giving me thousands of files that do not contain "php.ini". What am I doing wrong?

    Re: linux find help

    The command should have been
    Code:
    find / -name "php.ini"
    What you did was tell find to files in the directories / and php.ini. The second probably doesn't exist in the current directory, but the first will find everything.

    User error. Please replace user and try again
