I just got started as a reseller and I'm in the process of building my hosting business website. I have no problem creating the user's account page with databases etc. but what I'm not sure of is how I link the buttons on their page to their cPanel using the database. Am I right in assuming that the cPanel URL would be different for every user?
I can't log into Unity with new user account, after entering the password the login page refresh.
How ever I can login using this user via the console.
The first user, which I created during the installation work fine.
This new user have write access to all file in its home directory.
I have a quick question. This is on elementaryOS, actually, but eOS is based on Ubuntu. :) I created a user account with the command:sudo useradd <username>. I then ran id <username> and it was detected. However, when I logged out of my administrator account and the login screen came up, there was only the admin account and the Guest account.
I've been looking around everywhere, but did not find any solution.
The thing is, first I had a logfile that was exploding, so my server quota was reached. After fixing that I got a blank page on user levels (nothing, just a blank HTML page).
I have an old inherited user account with a lot of cruft in there, and would like to shift development of the site which will sit on the domain name associated with that account to a new user, in order to start with a clean slate.
I don't need to move across any websites, databases, etc etc etc.
I have a number of users (23) but i want to create another user that can be accessed only from one of the user account to do some specific task. How can i do it. And obviously this user cannot be root. Nobody else must see or have access to this user.
I don't have any idea how to do it, any attempt i did yesterday doesn't satisfy my conditions.
So I'm trying to create a new user account. I typed 'sudo adduser --group --system [user]'. I'm not sure if I needed the --group --system, but I was trying to do this quickly and didn't exactly scour the man page. Then I typed 'sudo passwd [user]' to set the password.
