Windows 7: Differences between Linux and Windows Server

26 Feb 2012   #1

Differences between Linux and Windows Server

I have been studying a web site that uses ASP.NET and so it resides on a Windows Server but it also uses some JScript so it is worth studying. Anyway, I am moving it to a Linux server and I have noticed some differences in the way it handles files. First of all, the Windows Server is not case sensitive. But I also noticed something else. It seems that the Windows Server can have file names with spaces in them like this: "Creative%20Design%20vert_S" where the "%20" is a space. But, when I try to upload this directory to the Linux server using FileZilla it does not seem to work. And then when I try to create the directory, I get an error "Forbidden command argument". So is using %20 in a direcory name illegal in Linux?

AFAIK yes, it's illegal.
also file/folder names like code::blocks will not work under windows (can't acces the file/folder error).

also have a look here:
Spaces and special characters in a Linux file name

When working at the Linux command line, you may notice that file names with special characters can cause some trouble. Learn how to deal with files that have spaces or special characters in their names, like $, ?, \, *, and so on.
