If you aren´t a skilled Debian (Linux) administrator and use Debian (Linux) only from time to time, so you might need some basic comands in order to work with the system. Here are some which are often used:


shutdown -r nowReboot the system
shutdown -h nowShutdown the system
sudo ...run the ... command as root
sudo -stemp. switch to root
free -hshow the RAM from the OS
rm example.zipremove file example.zip
df -lhTCheck Diskspace (free vs. used)
ip address showShow current IP(s)
ifconfig -aShow current IP(s)
rm -rf folderNameDelete non empty folder
find / -name example.txtSearch for a file. Note start in root with sudo to search everywhere!

Keep noted that some commands are case sensitive!
