I'm rather new to this server-config stuff.
I'm following the ubuntu tutorial on OpenSSL and I came across the command
echo '01' > serial && touch index.txt and i'm not quite sure what it's doing. I read something about 'touch' doing something with a timestamp.
What does the
touch filename.txt command do exactly?
It seems to send me into some weird prompt that I do not know how to get out of.
