I want to create a temporary VPS user to allow him SSH and check something.
I went at the domain, Edit users, created the user, under Quota and home directory settings, set the Home Directory to something and save.
I wanted to modify the value of the field, but it keeps being the same and now I’m stuck. (ok I can delete the user and recreate I guess). But look to me like a bug and should be fixed.
I made a video but it can’t be uploaded.
On very related topic, if I assign to a user an existing directory and then delete the user the directory shouldn’t be deleted (especially if it is public_html).
It seems you carried out the standard operation to add a user to a virtual server. To enable SSH access for the user, could you go to Webmin → System → Users and select an appropriate shell from the drop down options offered?
Yes and thank you for the suggestions I’ve been there already.
Using Webmin → System → Users, the user is created, but or the connection is refused or the password is incorrect.
I guess I’m not giving the right information at the login.
Using the Domains, Add a users worked fine after I understood how the login should be set;
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -p pppp
As I have no time to invest to understand the why, it was good enough.
However, I wanted the extra confort to drive the user directly into the directory I wanted (many Tikis installed ). But I found this bug about updating the value of the Home Directory.
Thanks again and take care
PS: before this discussion goes in every direction, I’m just reporting a bug, I have a workaround.
