How To display Timestamp in History command



By default, the history command shows just the command number and the command.
it could be very useful to add a timestamp to be shown, this can help you to monitor things by the time you run something.

To add the timestamp you need to export the next command:
#  export HISTTIMEFORMAT='%F %T '

if you want, you can add this line to your profile, so next you boot your machine, it will run automatic:
just edit /etc/profile  and add the line above.

Best Regards
