Question

midnight commander file manager

heyas all -

I’ve been running Linux on my local machines for almost 10 years, and am just now venturing out from shared hosting to VPS. I used the DO tutorials for a long time before spinning up my first droplet.

Just a suggestion to help those who are new to the terminal prompt:

sudo apt-get install mc

Once you get familiar with it I think you’ll find it makes many tasks very easy. I’ll often sudo mc to move and edit files as root. Be careful doing that!
