Shell Users

Can I add shell users manually, rather than through NodeWorx?

I’d like to run other services (perhaps streaming radio or a game server) from my server, but I don’t want to have to create a whole SiteWorx account for them, particularly as they wont have a domain name to use…

Thanks :slight_smile:

Yep, you can add shell users manually without any problems.


Sure you can!

Just login to the server through SSH and use the useradd command as root:


useradd -g <group name> -c “Full Name” -d <home directory> <username> -m

Was that what you meant?


Thanks Chris and tsl :slight_smile:
