I have 2 folders:
I want to move and overwrite all of the files from
tmp into the main folder.
I am currently using:
mv -f /home/sphinx/tmp/articlesdb/ /home/sphinx/
But I get this error:
mv: cannot move `/home/sphinx/tmp/articlesdb/' to a subdirectory of itself, `/home/sphinx/articlesdb'
It needs to do this as fast as possible so I don't want to copy.
Should I remove
/home/sphinx/articlesdb/ completely and then run the
mv command or do I just need to tweak the command slightly?
