My CISC professor has had our class use SSH to log in to his server, hosted by a company called Panix. We use vim to edit and compile our code on his server. We just took an exam, and as part of said exam, we were to create a directory on his server in our user directory and create a program in that directory.
We didn't complete the exam in class and we have until midnight tonight to finish it. (It's an open book/open internet exam, we just can't ask classmates for help.) Now, someone ran
rm -r on the said directory. The exam directory is gone. Or is it?
Does anyone know how I, or said classmate, can recover the directory, using the available information on the Panix website without having to log in as root? Is root required for this, or is there another way? Naturally, none of the student accounts are admins.
