CentOS 5 :: Adding User To System?

Aug 6, 2009

I've been trying to add a user to the system, so I can use it through samba to access the shares on the server. I'm using "useradd" but the command is not found... with a little search, I was able to find the command "/usr/sbin/useradd username" my question is can someone point me to a guide with basic administration task, I was checking out the wiki on Centos, but didn't find "adding user"; I know Centos has a gui for this, but I would like to stick to shell commands. By the way why some commands are only access through /sbin and others /usr/sbin. I know this probably has to do with your path, but how can I fix this so I don't have to type the whole path every time.

I am going to remove root access via SSH which seems fine but I don't know how to add a new user, do I have to create a group first or are there existing groups I can add a user to, and does it matter which group I add a user to if I want this user to have root access with sudo?

Server :: Illegal Character In User Name?

Mar 7, 2010

I have a SUSE mail server where I have user names like john.doe. And so the email address looks like [URL]..Now I move the server to slackware and I cannot create such users, it shows the error (I use adduser command): User 'john.doe' contains illegal characters (period/dot); please choose another What can be the best (simplest) solution to preserve my email addresses as they are. I also would like to preserve the user-names used for email authentication, because there are lot of mail user clients already using those logins. What is the point in that the dot is illegal in user names? I guess that there is a good reason to this but I would like to know what it is.

CentOS 5 :: Character Set On Installs - Danish Characters - UTF-8

Feb 10, 2010

I am having a problem editing / decoding files and characters in UFT-8 on my CentOS installs. I have a single FreeBSD server where the problem does not exist. Basically, what happens is that Danish special characters, as well as other non-ASCII characters, come out garbled when processed on the system. As an example, if I open a vim editor and type characters like � it comes out as ø

If I try using nano, the characters come out as Relatedly, if I import UTF-8 encoded files from other sources, they also appear broken when edited locally. I have tried updating the system language using system-config-language. Also, I have no desktop environment installed, I access my servers only through the command line. Here's some information that may or may not be relevant, (I have googled the problem a while and have come up empty except for references to some of these things that are already set):

CentOS 5 Networking :: Telnet Localhost 25 Hanging After Escape Character Is '^]'?

Dec 5, 2010

I have recently upgraded to a VPS for the purpose of web hosting a group of sites related to my business.The reason for the upgrade was because we wish to run a shopping cart software which required greater memory for PHP and the VPS was the most economic solution. So, I have very basic linux knowledge but I am the definition of a newbie when it comes to going further than just scratching the surface of server configuration! I have successfully hosted our main site for a number of weeks but recently the postfix service stopped sending mail. I have Plesk Control Panel installed and postfix continually shows as not started even though in SSH the service status is definitely running - I have gone through the troubleshooting checklist here (http://www.postfix-book.com/debugging.html#d0e6) but can't get any further than section 2.1 as when running the host command (#host relay-test.mail-abuse.org), I get # -bash: host:command not found. I've gone further in the document but not found any issues...

When postfix was working properly (i.e. sending emails!), the plesk CP showed the service as started and all emails from the website were sending as normal. The mailq command is showing the messages stuck in the mailq and the maillog shows the following:- http://pastebin.centos.org/36446 - these are the latest few pages.To check the configuration and basic elements I have flushed the mailq (which shows a stack of messages waiting) and I have also spent a long time (2 weeks) reading up on the parameters that should be in main.cf and master.cf.I have found that when I 'telnet localhost 25' I get the following response...[root@s15397216]# telnet localhost 25Trying to localhost.Escape character is '^]'.

Ubuntu Networking :: SSH Adding A New Non-Local User?

Jan 5, 2011

Trying to add my wife as a user to my computer, only to log on through SSH, not locally. Only problem is I use keys for logging in.

I've gone through the guide on the ubuntu website, created a key, copied to through a pen drive, put it in her .ssh folder on my computer, but it still comes up with the error:

Agent admitted failure to sign using the key.
Permission denied (publickey).

Is there a group I need to add her to, or add her public key to a different file somewhere?

General :: Adding User To A Secondary Group?

Sep 10, 2009

If user1's main group is genetics and one wants to add him/her to group biochem and to assign biochem as his/her secondary group will the following suffice ?


$ sudo usermod -G biochem user1

I would like for user1 to have genetics as the main group but also belong to biochem. When user1 creates a file, as he/she belongs to main group genetics, I assume the file will be owned by user1 and group owner will be genetics. Ideally files created by user1 should be accessible to users in group genetics(when permissions are tweaked) but not by individuals in group biochem. However, any files with group owner biochem should be accessible to user1 as he/she does belong to biochem as a secondary group. Would having user1 main group genetics, secondary group biochem fulfil this criteria ?

Server :: SFTP User Adding For VSFTPD?

Oct 24, 2010

I just installed Wordpress and i am delighted of it, nice peace of software. Even so I have to get running a FTP or SFTP server on my localhost machine. I did installed in my Ubuntu 10.10 the VSFTPD server and generated a RSA certificate file (vsftpd.pem). Strange it is that there is no vsftpd folder under /etc, instead vsftpd.conf file is directly into /etc ... so I have generated also my .pem file into /etc. Anyway I have a lot of trouble adding new users to access this server. I use Filezilla as SFTP client. Please let me know if you encountered such an issue, and what is the solution for it. Downwards is my vsftpd.conf file.

# Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf
# The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file
# loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.

Ubuntu :: Can't Sudo From Desktop User After Adding Root

Feb 22, 2011

I recently re-installed my U10.04 and this time around, I added a root user and brought the permission levels of my default user to "Desktop User" as well as elevate the root permissions as explained elsewhere in these forums. Everything went fine until I wanted to "sudo" something from the Desktop User account terminal. I use Skype a lot and preferred to use the repos to get it loaded. Into synaptic where it asked me for the password. I entered the password and I was rejected. Ok, maybe I typed it in wrong. Tried again. The third time I checked in an editor to make sure I wasn't in all-caps. Third time OUT!

Switched user to root and there were no problems. Enabled the partner repos, installed Skype, as well as all the other stuff I use to run my home office. I have missed something, I know I have - perhaps a setting somewhere in the user permissions. I don't want to have to switch user every time I have to make changes to the system. Alternatively, if it's better practise to just leave my system as it is for security purposes I'm not running a server, but I'd like to have my system as secure as reasonably possible without elevating my problem to "paranoid security" level.......

OpenSUSE :: Adding User To Access Control List In Nautilus

Aug 13, 2010

I have a shared folder that has it's access restricted to certain users on a file server at work. Currently when I try to add a user I follow this process:
Right click the Folder, go to Properties
Click the "Access Control List" tab
Select a user from the "Participants List"
Click Add

For most users this process works fine but with one of them I get the following error:
"Could not add ACL entry: Invalid Argument"
I also tried a script that a former employee created which seems to employ this command:
setfacl -m u:<USER>:rw- <PATH>
Running the command with the correct user and path returns a similar "Invalid Argument" error.
We're using OpenSuse 10.2.
