Dufus award of the year goes to me. Was trying to delete old quickVPN accounts/dirs and for whatever reason, I had one named exactly like my home account name. So I started and then stopped (closed ssh out once I realized) a rm -rf on a home/main_account dir while within /home. Looking for advice on how to proceed.
Can I re-run an installation of quickbox.io without loosing any current data (and possibly having it replace anything that may have been deleted in regards to the quickbox.io infrastructure on my server)?
As of now, my dashboard, rutorrent, and plex are accessible and working. However, some things have changed from what I remember. Maybe posting this will help someone help me identify what damage has been done.
When first logging in to SSH, I now see -bash-4.3$
When loggin in further as su, things still look normal
And when listing my home account directory with ls-la, it seems some folders/files/data are missing (as the list used to be a bit longer)
What I do know is that a torrent directory of mine for a specific tracker did get removed (~380 files). All other tracker directories remain thankfully (and I’ll be rechecking data on all torrents soon).
From what I’ve mentioned, how much damage do you think I’ve done rm -rf’ing my main /account/ while in /home for ~15 sec or so? Thankfully, this wasn’t a rm -rf on /, so I’m trying to figure out if thing’s are screwed up and not yet noticeable .
I’ll happily post a [ls -alR] for /home/account_name/ but need to check if anything important would shown.
Appreciate the help, and I’ll take any ideas on how to go about repairing this as much as possible.
P.S I’ve been thinking of switching servers as of lately, so how easy would it be to move over all data regarding rtorrent/torrents and have them propagating correctly on the new server?
