Hello… I would like to set up an SSH user to access the files on one particular website in my installation. I see where to set up an FTP user… but I can’t figure out where to set up an SSH user? Currenly the only SSH user is the root admin account

If you are sure you want to do this, I think you must give them a shell in /etc/password

At least that’s the way I remember doing it over a year ago.

Not the difference in /bin/bash, / bin/false

You could also set this using webmin->system->users and groups. But to save doing that just make sure the interactive terminal privs have been given to the user and they have a terminal from within webmin/virtualmin interface without needing ssh log in

Can you just not edit the user login type and assign ssh permissions?


As mentioned, this only works for the account owner
