sudo ln -s /home/sysop/spider.new /spider
Not sure how much file space is used by ~sysop/spider.new but
it's getting duplicated with a 'cp'. A symbolic link is simply
a "pointer" yet effectively connects /spider to ~sysop/spider.new.
On the other hand, if you want to keep the spider.new directory
pristine in case something goes wrong... 'cp' is not a bad thing.
Sorry for jumping in out of the left-field bleachers. :)
