runsvchdir: Switch `runsvdir` directories.
$ sudo runsvchdir ${path-to-directory}
try on your machine

This command executes the "runsvchdir" command with elevated privileges using "sudo". "runsvchdir" is a program that changes to the specified directory before running a command or script.

"${path-to-directory}" should be replaced with the actual path to the directory you want to change into. For example, if the directory is "/var/www", the command would be "sudo runsvchdir /var/www".

By running this command with "sudo", it allows you to execute the "runsvchdir" command as a superuser or administrator, which may be necessary if the directory you want to change into requires elevated privileges.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
