Deleting the same named file located in multiple directories in a LAMP Server

Good Afternoon,

I have a single file that shows up in multiple subdirectories off of the home directory on a LAMP server. The file is called wedo.php. There are possibly 300 of them in various directories under home and I need to delete them all. Is there a way to do a mass located and then a mass delete?

I am in a bit of hurry for this so any help you can give would be appreciated.

I forgot to change the file name!!!! Obviously make a backup before doing!

Correct scripts are:


find /var/www/ | grep "wedo\.php$" | awk {'print "rm " $1 '} | /bin/bash

Will do it.

To test without running the command:

find /var/www/ | grep "wedo\.php$" | awk {'print "rm " $1 '}
