hello there,
I would like to know how can I search only .php files using a command like this

grep -r -i "cHRVa2RQVjNSb1YwVndi" * | cut -d: -f1


I tried using this, and it works but doesnt show file path
find . -name '*.php' -exec grep "RnBOYms1d1V6Rk9jMDR3VG" {} \;

-l is the flag for grep to return the filename where the pattern exists.

What do you need to do with this?

It might be simpler if you provide details on what it is you wanto achieve.

Do you need to to replace the pattern with a new pattern?

perl -pi.bak -e 's/pattern/replacement/g;' *

 test on a single file first.  Files where the match is made will be duplicated with a .bak suffix.
