Find Location Of File Used By Process ID (PID)

Find Location Of File Used By Process ID (PID)

If you have some processes you don't recognize, you might want to find the location of the file that's being run. In order to do this, get the process ID (PID) by typing:

ps awx

Once you have the PID, do this:

cd /proc/PID
cat environ

The PWD line will probably tell you where to look.

Example:

www-data 15554 186 0.0 54084 1668 ? Ssl 10:06 17:36 ./kernelupdates -B -o stratum+tcp://hk2.wemineltc.com:80 -u spdrman.10 -p passxxx

cd /proc/15554

The environ file shows that the file was running from /tmp/.ice-unix
