http://unix.stackexchange.com – When I run this command from php sudo -u db2inst1 ls -t /var/lib/edumate/bdrs/*/*/daily/*NODE* | sort -r I receive sudo: unable to execute /bin/ls: Argument list too long ls lists all daily backup files we have for each customer. Customer has their directory under the bdrs directory. So I guess the number of files got bigger than allowed because it used to work correctly. Is there any way how to get list of all daily backup files using one shell command? (HowTos)
