Is it possible that after (maybe incorrect?) usage of the gzip some files, which definitely shouldn`t been touched, were changed?
Here is exactly, what I did: In Gnome user terminal, logged as user `karel` I changed to directory /var/www$ which is owned by root and looks like this
karel@sp1-c703-028:/var/www$ ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 2007-12-28 16:18 .
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 2007-11-16 22:34 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2007-11-16 22:09 analog -> /usr/share/analog/images
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2008-02-19 00:01 apache2-default
drwxr-xr-x 14 karel karel 4096 2008-01-21 03:45 karel
drwxr-xr-x 14 mrtwig mrtwig 4096 2008-02-14 01:29 mrtwig
Than I did
karel@sp1-c703-028:/var/www$ gzip -r karel
which packed all files and subdirectories inside directory `karel`. Now, when I unpacked them with
karel@sp1-c703-028:/var/www$ gunzip -r karel
everything in the directory looks as before, but file `index.html` which is inside `apache2-default` directory has changed to what it has been originaly when apache was installed. Now, I`m certain that I`ve edited this file as root before and save it. But now it`s as it was originally. I`m really confused about this. If something like this is possible, is there not a chance that other files have been corrupted?
I apologize if my question is stupid and/or answer is obvious, but can someone tell me what is going on?
Thank you very much for any reply.
