Remember to use echo correctly:

echo "something" > file

means that everything that’s in “file” will be deleted, and “something” will be written to it (which means that “something” will be right at the beginning of “file”.


echo "something" >> file

means that “something” will be appended to “file”, so nothing will be deleted from “file”, and “something will be at the end of “file”.
