Search for files with specific text in them

|Linux shell
find /var/www -type f -exec grep -l '/sync-clients/' {} \;

This will output all files with the specified string. The path in example is /var/www, and string we search for is /sync-clients/

|Linux shell
grep -iRl 'text' .
  • -i > ignore caps
  • -R > recursive
  • -l > Display filename instead of text
  • 'text' > text to search
  • . > location to start in
