Adding specific CustomLog for each Virtual Domain of Apache

Swap a file or dir with quick resotre
This lets you replace a file or directory and quickly revert if something goes wrong. For example, the current version of a website's files are in public_html. Put a new version of the site in public_html~ and execute the command. The names are swapped. If anything goes wrong, execute it again (up arrow or !!).

Simulate typing

if you are working in two different directories; e.g. verifying files in your home directory; ls ~/ and you need to cd to the /etc/directory. you can enter 'cd -' (no single quotes) to go back and forth between directories.

Makes you look busy
This makes an alias for a command named 'busy'. The 'busy' command opens a random file in /usr/include to a random line with vim. Drop this in your .bash_aliases and make sure that file is initialized in your .bashrc.

check open ports without netstat or lsof

Clear your history saved into .bash_history file!

Do the last command, but say 'y' to everything
I doubt this works with other than bash, but then again, I havent tried. The 'yes' utility is very simple, it outputs a hell of a lot of 'y's to standard input. The '!!' command means 'the last command'. So this one-lines inputs a lot of y's into the last command, aggressively agreeing to everything. For instance, when doing apt-get.

copy ACL of one file to another using getfacl and setfacl
If you copy windows file in e.g. cygwin the ACL might miss on the copied file. With this command you can copy the ACL of an existing file to another. WARNING: Existing ACL will get lost.

tar exclude files or directories
If you want to exclude only one file or directory you should use as --exclude=file_or_directory
