i have centos VPS created using XEN + OpenVZ virtualization.
-bash-3.2# uname -a Linux host.domain.com 2.6.18-274.7.1.el5.028stab095.1xen #1 SMP Mon Oct 24 22:10:04 MSD 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
there are no question asked when i want to delete file(s)
-bash-3.2# vi test.txt -bash-3.2# rm test.txt -bash-3.2#
the main server (not virtualized one) is asking me first before delete any files.
[root@main ~]# vi test.txt [root@main ~]# rm test.txt rm: remove regular file `test.txt'? y [root@main ~]#
how to configure virtualized environment to prompt me before deleting any file(s)?
UPDATES: i don't want to use rm -i for each rm command. bashrc selected as answer.
.bash_profile from main server
enter the following:
# .bashrc # User specific aliases and functions alias rm='rm -i' alias cp='cp -i' alias mv='mv -i' # Source global definitions if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then . /etc/bashrc fi
ii) copy default bash profile into user path
cp /etc/skel/.bash_profile /root/
now my shell become
