Set Linux History command with Date Timestamp.

As seen in Ask Ubuntu here. You can setup your bashrc with HISTTIMEFORMAT to get the linux history with date timestamp. However, the original dates will not show up for commands you previously ran. The date will apply from the current timestamp when you configured this setting.

Edit your ~/.bashrc file and add this line:


Source the file:

$ source ~/.bashrc


$ history
