This page has links to a number of BASH scripts that you can download and use on your own system. This page is for more advanced Linux users who already are familiar with BASH. Scroll down to see what’ts available.
Have fun with these! Feel free to do with them as you will but keep in mind that I have not tested them on every other Linux distribution available and I cannot offer support to you if they don’t work on yours. I would love to hear your comments and I will happily look at any suggestions for new features or code fixes but I do not have the time or inclination to run and test your modified versions, act as a beta tester or even offer useful advice if your changes are not working. I am NOT an expert; I am simply sharing tool that I use everyday.
CYA (Cover Your Ass(ets))
CYA is a joint project with Jeremy O’Connell at CyberwebSolutions that offers users a way to backup and restore the state of their Linux systems. CYA is designed to work on most Linux distributions and is great for Desktops, Server and IoT applications. It can be easily automated so you can “set it and forget it.” CYA is a very advanced tool and will appeal to System Admins but installation and setup is highly automated so even a novice can use it.

EzeeLinux BASH Script Collection
(SFTPin – SSHin – SyncIt – Up – XBT (External Backup Tool) – Z-Clean – Z-Defrag)
This file contains seven tools that I have created for my own use. They have been featured in videos on my YouTube channel. Be sure to take the time to look through the included README file for explanations and tips on using them.
Note: XBT now allows users to backup more than one machine on the same drive! Version 1.6 creates a directory called XBT_Backups and then places directories with the machines names within it. The log file also is tucked in to XBT-Backups making for a neater layout. If you have been using an earlier version of XBT, you should delete the old backups or reformat your XBT_Drive before using the new version 1.6

EzeeLinux Tweaks and Trcks
This is not a script but a text file with a collection of useful commands. You can use these to clean things up, boast performance or just have fun with Linux. Watch the video for a more in-depth explanation of many of the commands.
Ubuntu/Linux Mint Installation Scripts
Here are a couple of scripts I use to speed up installing 3rd party software on Ubuntu and Linux Mint. Feel freee to change these to fit you’re setup. The idea is to keep a copy with you data backup and if you ahve to reload it will make it a quick and relatively painless operation.
More to come…
