Ubuntu, Save Unlimited Bash Commands

Ubuntu saves only 500 last used ssh commands. It will overwrite the history file Moneygram locations if this limit is over. By adding the following line to ~/.bashrc , you can instruct Ubuntu to append to the history file, thus preventing the overwriting

[code]shopt -s histappend[/code]

Just execute this command to append the line to the basnrc file

echo “shopt -s histappend” >> ~/.bashrc

If you want to erase complete bash history then use the following command

[code]echo > ~/.bash_history [/code]

Hope this helps.
