How do I find the path to a particular program? Print

This can easily be done through SSH, but it must be enabled on your account. Please contact us if you need to have SSH enabled, or if you just need the path to a program on the server.

If you have a shell enabled account:
Once you have established a connection to your account via SSH, you can use the "whereis" utility to find the path to the program you are trying to locate. For example, if you wanted to find the path to the "grep" program, you would type the following from the command line:

"whereis grep" (do not include the "quotes")

The program would then return any and all possible paths to this particular program.
