Linux: Create Directory

If you are using Linux or Unix-like OS and need to create a new directory, you’re most likely going to use the mkdir command:

$ mkdir newdir

or you can specify a full path to it (in this example I’m creating a subdirectory in my /home/greys homedir)

$ mkdir /home/greys/newdir2

If you specified a wrong name or incorrect location, you can use the rmdir command to remove the directory like this:

$ rmdir /home/greys/newdir2
