What is a path?

Path

A path is a directory specification. It tells you where something is located on your hard drive. Linux has a directory hierarchy that begins at /, which is also known as 'root'. In the / (root) directory, you'll find several standard directories like /bin, /usr, and /home. When a path starts at /, with something such as /home/username/public_html, it is known as an absolute path
