Linux copying files

Recommended Posts

I would really appreciate if anyone could tell me how to copy all files in the path /mnt/magic/docs Into a folder like /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ I've tried using the mv command. However, everything I tried adding a '*' in the command for "current directory", the entire folder gets deleted. mv /mnt/magic/docs/ /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ *

and what is the point of the period at the end of
"cp /mnt/magic/docs/* /var/ww/localhost/htdocs/." or it is just the end of ur sentence?

If I remember correctly, the period does mean something in linux.
