Intro to Linux File System

Info

Across different Linux distributions, you will find a directory structure which has some degree of similarity. This is because of the Linux FileSystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) which gives a listing of some location of directories, their naming and use. It is important to understand how these directories are organised, as this makes it easier to know where to find what you need, and also how not to mess with how the system is designed to operate. In this tutorial, we shall cover the location and usage of some of these directories.
