    Bash profile colors on SSH

    I have modified my .bashrc to make ls color file like this:

    Code:
    alias ls='ls --color=auto'
    However, it doesn't work when I log on to the machine on SSH. It works if I call "ls --color=auto", but ls alone is still colorless. What am I missing?

    you'll need to source your .bashrc in .bash_profile (create it if you dont have one)
    in it, enter;
    Code:
    [[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc
