Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi all, I'm new here so I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, but I was hoping someone might be able to help me out with this problem we've been having with rsync.
We have an rsync cron job set up to mirror all the files in a "..\das\htdocs\docs" folder to the same folder on another server. It copies all the files over correctly and deletes any files in the "docs" directory that aren't in the sending directory, but it also deletes any files we put in the target directory's parent folder (..\das\htdocs\ or other subfolders like ..\das\htdocs\images) even though they've been excluded in the .rsync-filter file.
So for example server A has ..\das\htdocs\docs and ..\das\htdocs\images. Server B has ..\das\htdocs\docs but if I manually copy the images folder over to ..\das\htdocs\images, the images folder gets deleted from the target directory every time rsync runs.
I'd like to keep just the docs directory synched and update other folders manually, but they keep getting deleted. It looks to me like it's running a delete-excluded option, but that option wasn't used.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong and how I can fix it?
