Basic Mission 8

Post by limdis on Wed Jan 01, 2014 2:26 pm
([msg=78688]see Basic Mission 8[/msg])

Requirements:
SSI


This challenge is completed very much like Basic 7 with the exception that instead of *nix commands, it uses Server Side Includes (SSI). When you play Stephanie’s program you should notice that the output file has a .shtml extension, and make sure to pay attention to which directory your command is running!

Good luck!

How are we supposed to change to the correct directory if certain commands are blocked?

The script looks for the correct command and simulates a response for that specific command.

For those about to rock.

So is there is only 1 correct (and accepted) command ?

It doesn't have to be a match to a single string, ie, different spacing might be allowed. But you have to be very close to the right answer for it to work.

Okay, hi, I'm new here!
Straight down to the brass tacks,
I got through 1 to 7 in an hour or so, but I'm pretty stumped here.
I have a vague idea what the answer might be, but I'm not sure. Don't think I can post it here though. Is there anyone I can PM for help?
Thanks! :)

IRC is a good place to bounce ideas off of. You can give an idea of what you're trying here, just nothing that's spoilerish.

Hi guys,
this is my first post and all,...
I got through the first seven in a breeze, but got stuck on this one,...
I'm not here to beg for answers, I actually feel I'm close to it,...
I just can't seem to find the right directory or file,... :/

When I run any other command that the one it lets me, I get a "Good work you're on track" kind of message.

Any major clues\hints I'm missing here? :)

Look at mission 9. 9 is based off of this one. It might give you a hint as to what you're doing wrong in 8.

I get that I need UNIX directory structure knowledge.
When I do the only command it lets me I get a bunch of .shtml files,...
But when I try a single line multi-command to navigate to the correct directory it won't let me,...
