I recently installed the
apache2 package using the Software Centre, I want to create an alias
apacheres which will replace the more cumbersome command
I opened the
.bashrc file in my home directory, and it contains the following lines:
# Alias definitions. # You may want to put all your additions into a separate file like # ~/.bash_aliases, instead of adding them here directly. # See /usr/share/doc/bash-doc/examples in the bash-doc package. if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then . ~/.bash_aliases fi
So I created a
.bash_aliases file in my home directory, and added only this line:
alias apacheres ='/etc/init.d/apache2 restart'
When I started my terminal, I get this error message:
bash: alias: apacheres: not found bash: alias: =/etc/init.d/apache2 restart: not found
The shell has obviously read the file, otherwise it wouldn't know of its existence. I have checked the directory path and I can find the file
apache2 there. What do I need to do to make this alias work?
