If you got an email from cPanel regarding "Disk Usage Warning" that means your "/backup" disk reached critical status and you have to remove the old backup files from your server and backup disk. Here in this video tutorial you'll learn how to delete the backup file and directory by using "rm" command in linux.

cPanel Monitoring

The rm ("remove") command is used to delete files. When used recursively, it may be used to delete directories.

rm removes each file specified on the command line. By default, it does not remove directories; see removing directories below for details.

The removal process unlinks a file name in a filesystem from its associated data, and marks that space on the storage device as usable by future writes. In other words, when you remove a file, the data in the file isn't changed, but it's no longer associated with a filename.

The data itself is not destroyed, but after being unlinked with rm, it becomes inaccessible. Remove your files wisely! It's not like putting something in the Windows Recycle Bin; once you rm a file or directory, there is no way to undo it.


rm myfile.txt

Remove the file myfile.txt. If the file is write-protected, you will be prompted to confirm that you really want to delete it.

rm -f myfile.txt

Remove the file myfile.txt. You will not be prompted, even if the file is write-protected; if rm can delete the file, it will.

rm *

Remove all files in the working directory. If it is write-protected, you will be prompted before rm removes it.

rm -f *

Remove all files in the working directory. rm will not prompt you for any reason before deleting them.

rm -i *

Attempt to remove every file in the working directory, but prompt before each file to confirm.

rm -I *

Remove every file in the working directory; prompt for confirmation if more than three files are being deleted.

rm -r mydirectory

Remove the directory mydirectory, and any files and directories it contains. If a file or directory that rm tries to delete is write-protected, you will be prompted to make sure that you really want to delete it.

rm -rf mydirectory

Same as the above command, but you will never be prompted; if rm can delete the files, it will.

How to Hide All Desktop Icons on Your Mac without Using Any Software or App

If you need to use your Mac for a presentation at work or school, you may want to tidy up your machine by removing all the icons that are cluttering up your desktop. You can drag all the icons off your desktop for your presentation and then drag them back when you are done, but that method can be inconvenient and increases the chance that you could accidentally lose a file or two in the moving process. There is an easier way that allows you to temporarily hide the icons, while still keeping the files in their original location.

There’s a faster and easier way to hide all the icons on your Desktop, though, using the Terminal.
Quickly launch Terminal using an app launcher like Alfred or just double clicking the app in your Utilities folder.

Once there, type or paste the following command in:

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop false

then restart the Finder with the following:

killall Finder

This will hide all the icons on your Desktop in one fell swoop so you can go about your business on the big projector.

When you’re done and you want to see that giant pile of clutter again, simply reverse the command:

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop true

killall Finder
There you have it – quick, easy, and trouble free without using any free or premium softwares.

How to Build and Grow Your Online Freelance Web Design Business!

As a freelance web designer, you are well aware of the strong competition out there. There is a large number of professionals offering the same kind of services that you do – not necessarily with the same quality – and, sometimes, for an outrageously small fee. And you might have come to realize that you need to stand out from the crowd by building and growing your personal brand.

Making yourself unique to potential clients will help them understand that you are the best option available and that doing what you do isn’t cheap or something that can be delivered fast-food style. It takes time and expertise to meet their expectations, and you want to be recognized for your skills.

But how to do it considering that you probably have very little money and time to spare? So here you will find a step-by-step guide on personal branding for web designers that will cost you almost nothing.

Define Your Brand

Step 1 – Define Your Brand

The first thing you will have to do so you can start building your personal brand is to define what it really means. In other words, what you are been asked here is to decide how you want to be perceived by your clients and which promises you will be selling.

For starters, you should concentrate on your strengths and expertise. What makes you the best choice for them? Why should they contract you and not another web designer? What is the added value that you can offer to your clients?

You can list from best pricing and fast delivery to the use of specific techniques or software, unlimited reviews, a first-class portfolio, 5-star testimonials from your clients, etc. Write down what you think that make you stand out as a web designer, so you can use it on your personal branding messages.

Rest assured that even companies invest on their leaders’ personal branding, so, as a freelancer, you shouldn’t ignore it. But, remember, what you are selling is yourself. Faking or exaggerating who you are might bring some clients initially, but they will run away from you as soon as they notice the fraud. And, possibly, they will leave a very bad feedback behind them, what is even worse in the long term. So always be yourself and find your own style.

Analyse Your Target Audience

Step 2 – Analyse Your Target Audience

Now that you know which type of service you are selling, it is time to decide who would contract it. Think about your potential clients and their characteristics, and what they might be expecting from a web designer.

Do they belong to a specific industry, in case you have specialized in just a few of them? Are they used to contract freelancers, or will you need to explain to them the advantages of dealing with a remote worker? Above all, where can you find them? And which is the best channel and way to communicate with them?

On the other way around, spend some time trying to learn how to communicate with your clients in a more effective way as well. So when they contact you, you won’t lose any contract out of some misinterpretation.

Figure Out How Much Time You Have

Step 3 – Figure Out How Much Time You Have

We all have busy schedules nowadays, but, if you want to grow your personal brand, you will have to make time for it. Still, it is understandable that you will need to be realistic here, as you need to get done the job you already have in your hands, and that you probably have a life as well.

So, give some thought on how much time you can spare per day or week in order to build and grow your personal brand as a web designer. Consider, for example, that it is not just a question of posting things online, but also of answering comments and emails as fast as you can. Plus, you will have to monitor and analyse your metrics.

More hours you can set aside, better and faster results you will get. But you will be surprised by how much you can do with as little as 30 minutes per day.

Build Your Online Presence

Step 4 – Build Your Online Presence

The cheapest and easiest way to build a personal brand nowadays is through a strong online presence. Especially in your case, as a web designer, not having profiles on the most important social media networks, plus a well-selected online portfolio, is almost a professional suicide.

So make sure that:

  1. Your LinkedIn profile is updated, as many potential clients might want to check your CV there.
  2. Your Twitter is full of articles and tips about web design.
  3. You explore the possibility of using Pinterest to showcase your portfolio.
  4. You have, at least, a basic website with your bio and portfolio.
  5. Your Facebook is set to private if you won’t be using it for professional purposes.
  6. You use an app, such as Hootsuite, to schedule all your weekly posts, so won’t waste time posting every day.

Step 5 – Write About Web Design (and publish it)

Step 5 – Write About Web Design (and publish it)

If you want to be seen as an authority in your field, you need to let them know that. Meaning that you will have to show off your skills and write articles or posts about web design.

You can either have your own blog, possibly linked to your website, or search for a guest blogging guide, so you can take advantage of other sites’ established reputation and high traffic. And nothing is stopping from trying both either. You can also post texts directly on LinkedIn and other social media channels.

In order to do it, make sure that you are updated with the latest trends in digital marketing, so your texts will be relevant. And don’t forget to share your article on your social media channels, and to comment on relevant sites, blogs, and forums.

Don’t be afraid if you are a new in the area, and think that you don’t have much to say. Share the new skills you have been learning (because this is what should be your top priority) so far, and people will follow you same way.

Step 6 – Try Some Offline Channels as Well

Step 6 – Try Some Offline Channels as Well

Despite the fact that you work online, it shouldn’t stop you from making the most of the offline possibilities to grow your personal brand. Congresses, workshops, mass-media publications, conferences can all bring many clients to you and turn you into an authority overnight.

So if there is an opportunity for you to get an article published by a local newspaper, to give an interview to a radio station, or for a presentation in a congress, go for it. Take some old-fashioned business cards with you and reach out to as many people as possible.

And don’t ignore small events as well. If you are invited to talk to a small class of students about what is to be a web designer, accept it with a smile on your face. You never know who their parents are.

In Conclusion

Building and growing your personal brand as a web designer might seem daunting, but you can easily achieve it. You just need to make sure that you know your strengths and that you make people aware of them as well.

Keep everything consistent and don’t be afraid to show off you skills. With a bit of time and money, you are bound to bring to yourself the best clients out there.

URL shortening is a technique on the World Wide Web in which a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) may be made substantially shorter in length and still direct to the required page. This is achieved by using an HTTP Redirect on a domain name that is short, which links to the web page that has a long URL. For example, the URL http://ibrahimjabbari.com/english/index.php/blog/item/407-how-to-create-your-own-branded-url-shortener-without-any-coding can be shortened to http://algr.in/ZkewpP. This is especially convenient for messaging technologies such as Twitter and Identi.ca which severely limit the number of characters that may be used in a message. Short URLs allow otherwise long web addresses to be referred to in a Tweet. In November 2009, the shortened links of the URL shortening service Bitly were accessed 2.1 billion times.
