ss import files

Routine:

  • runs ss-import-files

Description:

Displays an interactive dialogue in the shell that allows you to untar an archive file named /tmp/import.tar or if not exists, an alternative gzipped file that is named /tmp/import.tar.gz which will overwrite the files located under /var/www/html after prompting you to confirm. If any pre-existing files exist that are not overwritten by this process, they will continue to exist afterwards… the directory is not emptied out or deleted beforehand.
