cPanel 7.3.2015 No Comments

Below is the “find”command that looks for specific files in the “home” directory. The following script is finding files that are 500000k or larger

find /home -type f -size +500000k -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk ‘{ print $9 “: ” $5 }’
The previous command will output a similar result like the following.

/home/userna5/public_html/error_log: 514M
/home/userna5/backup-userna5.tar.gz: 738M
