I tried to move all files inside a directory to another directory like this:
$ mv /directory_one/* /directory
However, the hidden files (such as .htaccess) in /directory_one won’t be moved.
What is the right command to do so?
This should do it:
mv /directory_one/* /directory_one/.* /directory
It will move regular files and dotfiles.
