pleas help me.


Are you able to send mail from your linux box to your mail, did you configured you mail server, once look at the below link

I use a script for this problem but acctually there is a application in server which automatically creates one directory and one file and after some hours it delets that file and folder and recreates them again.
What do i do, if i want to ignore ‘licence.php’ and ‘update’ directory in my script so the script doesn’t email their names (the file and folder name)


inotifywait -mqr -e create,moved_to /usr/share/nginx/html/ | while read path action file; do

        if [ "$file" != "licence.php" ] &&  [ "$file" != "update" ]; then

       echo "The file '$file' appeared in directory '$path' via '$action'" | mailx -s "File ${NEWFILE} has been created" ""


Acctually my script will email me file and folders which are made but it doesn’t ignore licence.php and update folder , ignore part in my script doesn’t work and even with creation of these 2 file and folder , script will continue its work and email me their names too.
How can i solve this problem?
