Setting Permanent Aliases


#1

Hi,

How do I set permanent aliases on my DreamHost shell?
I’ve edited my .bashrc, to no effect. Is there a different file that I should edit, or is it even possible to set aliases on a remote computer?

TIA,
John

You can put them in .bash_profile or put
. .bashrc
into .bash_profile.

man bash or http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Environment_Setup for more.
