Hello there someone who can help please. I give up, I have been going around this problem of finding the .conf directories and sub-directories and send the result to s9. I am stuck here. I have tried the command: find /etc -name *.conf >s9 in so many different ways according to so many tutorials and forums and it just not working. I am resolute in completing this tutorials and review them at the end and keep it as a guide for my future "Linux career" if there is anything of that sort, but I can't move on.

Can anyone please help?

I want to thank you in advance for any reply to my query. :cry:

Are you in /home/demo?
Are you user demo?
You should always put the *.conf in quotes...
Hope that helps.

Thank you so much, I guess I was getting it right all the time but because I kept getting a list of "Permission Denied" error messages, I was assuming my answer wrong so I never even bothered in pressing the "check" button on the quiz but I did precisely that this time around and I passed the question, so it was all me being careless I guess, but still thank you very much again.
