finding the bash script running

I was trying to determine which process was accessing a folder in my system and noticed it had a pid of 15742. However, I couldn't determine where this bash script was running (like the location of the bash file or which user is running it) Any ideas?

 ps -ef | grep 15742
root      6432  5000  0 22:14 pts/4    00:00:00 grep 15742
root     15742 15662  0 16:25 pts/1    00:00:00 -bash

Try lsof -p 15742
It will give more information on the running process

You can do an fuser -uc /folder to see whih pid is accessing it.

-bash is a login shell (see the "-") in front.

So it's not a script, but a user login session whose current directory is the "folder" in question.

Issue "who | grep pts/1" to find the name of the responsible user and their login time.

Additionally, you can grep for "15662" which is the parent PID of the shell, to (possibly) get further hints.
