comment Copy content of one folder to another in linux
I wish to note that the cp command itself, never 'sees' the asterisks, but they are expanded by the shell prior to cp being run. This means if there are 20 items in /path/to/test/ then cp is run with its -pr switch, plus 21 filenames/paths. The last one listed is treated as the destination. This means that using *.* will also pickup folder names that contain an internal dot. If you want to also get hidden files and folders set the bash dotglob option shopt -s dotglob. You can test the effect of globbing using the echo command, e.g. echo * and echo *.*

comment Finding out who hacked my site
Once your system is 'owned,' your backups are your only trustable recourse, but be ware - whatever vulnerability led to this breach, also exists in your backups. For extra credit, you could setup a honeypot using the backups and capture some data to see how the breach happened (if they attackers re-attack your system after a restore).

comment Finding out who hacked my site
As to your 'Biggest Question,' you probably can't track the source of the breach, as foreign systems are likely involved, and they won't waste time on small beans. Try not to take the breach personally, though. All that aside, your logs are the place to start, assuming they are unaltered. Also your service provider for the server might have some limited traffic data logged (like IP addresses and date stamps).

comment Detecting restart since last run in a shell script on Linux?
CAVEAT: This will improperly return TRUE also, if the script/executable has been edited/built since the last reboot. This can also be used against nonexecutables/scripts to test whether they've been accessed since boot.

comment Is there a way to turn off client browser caching for specific websites?
@Mircea This IS a browser agnostic solution. I just provided a gratuitous example using IE. Many other browsers do have an option to disable caching SSL, but the settings are in different places.

comment running tar completely locks up mysql
@Paxxil Let's see the actual tar command you are using. Are you using the -z option? How about the -j option? Does it make a difference either way? What about running tar without using compression? If running without compression works okay, what about piping tar into gzip?

This would work, IF GollyJer had the ability to modify the website. I gather he doesn't based on his question.
