Stupid question -
I know how to recursively tarball a directory when I'm in the directory chain right above it...
like say I'm in
and I want to tarball /var/www/httpdocs
I know how to do that. But - say I don't want the tarball to start with the httpdocs directory...and just want to tarball up everything "from where I am."
So I go into /var/www/httpdocs and tarball from within there...what's the syntax for that?
