Adding a New User in Ubuntu

Adding User

When setting up a new website manually on an Ubuntu server you need to establish a user account with a home directory, and Bash shell access to the server.

useradd -m testuser -s /bin/bash

After creating the account you’ll want to assign a password for the account.

passwd testuser
