How would I prune files that end in _batch_upload.csv?


I have a number of files in a directory called: /var/www/vhosts/

I would like to delete all of the files that end in: _batch_upload.csv

Here is an example of a real file: 3537732f540a1ac4298237f74c0928f5_batch_upload.csv

How would I do it via the command line?

Kind Regards,

Adrian Smith

Hi lwfuk,

The easiest is simply:

  rm /var/www/vhosts/*_batch_upload.csv

  cd /var/www/vhosts/
  rm *_batch_upload.csv

Good Luck,
