Re: rename one file

mv filename.ext ./filename.EXT didn't work?
this is if the file you want to rename is in that directory and you want the new file there as well.
if your using a path on the first part of move mv /etc/hosts.allow (and you not in it) mv assumes you want the file in the current directory so you need mv /etc/hosts.allow /etc/hosts.ALLOW
