Some times, In Linux and UNIX, you may want to copy only the directory structure without copying the content and you want to create a similar directory structure in some other place. here is the quick way to do that.


Create the parent directory at wherever you want.


mkdir /where/ever/you/want


Example: mkdir /app01/data


switch to the directory from where you want to copy the directory structure.

cd /from/where/you/want/to/copy/directory/structure


Example: cd /app02/data


Now type the following command in the server terminal


find * -type d -exec mkdir /where/you/want/\{\} \;


Example: find * -type d -exec mkdir /app01/data/\{\} \;


Now the directory structure create in the new path where you specified as it is in the source.
