To copy a directory in Linux, you can use the cp command. Here's how you can do it:
Open a terminal on your Linux system.
Type the following command and press Enter:
cp -r source_directory destination_directory
Replace source_directory with the path to the directory you want to copy, and destination_directory with the path to the location where you want to create the copy.
The -r option stands for "recursive" and is necessary to copy both the directory and its contents.
The cp command will create a copy of the specified directory and its contents at the destination location.
Here's an example command to copy a directory named "my_directory" located in the current directory to a destination directory named "backup":
cp -r my_directory backup
This will create a copy of "my_directory" and its contents inside the "backup" directory.
Please ensure that you have the necessary permissions to read the source directory and write to the destination directory when performing the copy operation.
