A rough bash script for copying an image, changing ownership, and deleting the directory

I wrote this bash script to take an image with a date/time stamp in the file name which has been uploaded from a FOSCAM camera via Linux FTP server, copy and rename the image, change ownership of the image, then delete the directory the FOSCAM creates in the FTP upload folder.


#!/bin/bash


for file in /[directory]/uploads/*/*/*.jpg
do
cp --no-preserve=all "$file" /var/www/[website]/image.jpg && rm -R /[directory]/uploads/F*
done
