I am new to Linux. I am trying to copy some files from one folder on a Linux server to another folder on the same folder. The folders have different owners; however, I have read and write permissions on both folders. I used the command
chmod 777 /tmp/source_data
and then I tried the command
cp -r /tmp/source_data /projects/project_1
However, I got the error "file or directory not found". Can someone please give me some advise?
