Usually most servers I have leased already came with both admin and root account setup… But this latest server came with only the root account… and no admin.
Personally I find that a threat to login with root directly, so I’d like to have an admin account to login with, and want to disable direct root login via shell.
I know about the useradd command, but how do I setup the user admin to have a directory in /home/admin or /admin ??
Also, are there some special parameters I must specify when creating my admin account so its part of any certain linux specific groups/permissions?? Thats where I am kind of hung up on, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I am running Interworx-CP on CentOS v5.0 (final)… incase that is must know informaton in regards to admin account creation…
