After some time I knew what to do, it was all about altering what I had. I had the right command all along but I had a small syntax error, and I think that a lot of people here get stuck on that error as well without realizing it. Yes, it was frustrating at some point.

but

I think mission 8 has a great design, because it only allows the necessary commands it forced me to look deeper into how these commands work and their variations. I learned more than I needed to complete the level. Well done guys!

Ok, I've been on this mission for 2 days now and I'm completely stumped. I know it's right in front of me but I just can't quite get it. I had no SSI experience before this, but after reading through this thread I got to the list of files and feel like I know exactly what to do, it's just not letting me execute the right command to get to the directory I need. Can I PM someone for some help?

ie : ' command that gets you password ' gives you that message but
: " command that gets you password " works.

thats just...ugh.


Omg... This is exactly the problem I was having as well. Had me stuck for hours thinking I was going crazy.

I did hours and hours of research on this level, trying to access a specific directory and now that I finally solved it (by haphazardly searching other directories), I don't get why we're told to check this directory !!!

Can someone explain this to me ? It's very frustrating to know that I could have saved so much time by just ignoring what appeared to be a hint !

I've done my research, i know what to list dirs and stuff. I just can't seem to get it exact to the point the whitelist asks. I've tested my commands in a shell and they work fine, just when inserted into the box it doesn't match the specific that's required thus sends me to the "your in the right direction" page. e.g. i can get a list of the .shtml files, anything else just sends me away.

Edit: NVM figured it out lol
