scripting with hostname
« on: September 24, 2014, 09:51:09 PM »
Hi all,

I'm writing a bash script to do a backup, and am wondering how I use the hostname in a bash script in tinycore.

If I type hostname enter from the prompt, I get the following.

Code: [Select]
$ hostname
backserver

However I have had no luck using it in my script. I just want to echo the hostname of the server running the script into a log file, that has some other stuff in it.

Any suggestions and comments welcome.

Thanks.
Live long and prosper.

Hi remus
This will append the hostname to the end of filename.log:
Code: [Select]
hostname >> filename.log
