  • Look for what ? – Sony Dec 5 '18 at 18:41
  • Look for everything. Whether they exist, what their permissions and ownership are, anything unusual. – Michael Hampton Dec 5 '18 at 18:42
  • it does not exist – Sony Dec 5 '18 at 18:43
  • Which does not exist? The file or the directory? You were meant to look at both. – Michael Hampton Dec 5 '18 at 18:45
