Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Create new folder and text file the same time in one line

Is it possible to create new folder and write a new text file in the folder while the current position is outside the new folder? in one line

Code:
mkdir folder | echo "hello test"> folder/test.txt

not work.

The pipeline | is for conveying one process' stdout to another process' stdin. Neither does mkdir print anything to stdout, nor does echo read from stdin. So - above pipe is pointless. Try
Code:
mkdir -p folder && echo "hello test"> folder/test.txt

echo only if mkdir succeeds.
