fuyan*,

please pay attention to case! Upper and lower case letters are significant on Unix/Linux - it is case sensitive.

Did your command execute? Did you get any errors?

Please show us (copy + paste the exact information from your terminal into your posts) what happens when you run your commands; i.e. show us exactly what command you run, and what output you see on the screen.

Hey that's great!

How did you solve it? Was it a case issue?

Please mark this thread [SOLVED] so that others can find it when looking for solved threads. You can do this using the "Thread Tools" menu right above the first post.

Best regards!
