We made blogs on every tool and everything but we forget to make blogs on this basic thing. So now we are making it, if you don’t know the basic commands of Linux and you are using Linux then you have to face problems. It is better to learn basic commands of Linux before moving on to direct hacking. So let’s start!

Note: All the commands are written in small letters don’t use them in upper-case because Linux systems are case sensitive…

Now we will show you some of the basic commands of Linux below –

1. Whoami

This command shows you the username of your account if you type it in your terminal.

2. Passwd

With this command, you can change your password directly from the terminal, and if you are thinking that it is also the same command as the windows password changing command which didn’t ask you for the current password, and anyone can change your password. So it is not, it asks you for your current password before typing the new one…

3. Mkdir

The following command is used to make a folder. One time you learn the commands then you can do whatever you want from the terminal you don’t have to go anywhere in Linux that’s why Linux operating systems are better because you can control anything from one place. The full form of mkdir command is “Make directory“…

4. Cd

Did you remember this command? we use this command in every single blog and if you know what it does so comment down below what is the full form of this command we will not tell you the full form because this is so easy you have to comment on it.

8. Chmod 777 & +x

When a file did not open or run so it means that the file wants permission to run these commands give the permissions to files. The first is (chmod 777) command which gives file permission to open but remember you have to give permission with this command only to that file which you have to use one time. For example, the requirements file of a hacking tool.

The second is (chmod +x) which gives a file universal access means if you give file permission with this command so you have to type only the name of that file and you can open that file from anywhere in the terminal. For example, you can give permission to a tool with this…
