ok, i've done this so many times, and i just forgot how to overcome this error.
so i am writing this little how to just incase you are also having this problem.
if you are getting this error: cp: omitting directory
this is what you need to do:
cp -r orginal_file new_file
so the trick here is to add the -r escape on your command and it shouldn't give you an error anymore
hope this helps.
if you ever need web hosting, visit www.webune.com they have excellent service.
