Good Day Gerasimos,

In a previous post I was having problems with webmin creating the user properly. Your suggestion was to use 'adduser' to add user. That worked perfectly. Now I want to ask your advice on how to proceed with server.

Shouldn't webmin be able to create the user and password? How do I make that work? I personally don't mind doing that but wife wants to use webmin.

Also, how do you suggest adding in bulk users?

thanks for your help and advice

Well I was wrong about webmin, webmin create the users properly, and since webmin didn't cause your errors, then it's alright.
As for bulk users use 'useradd', typing 'useradd testuser' will only create a user named testuser, with no home directory, no password or shell access.
What type of bulk users you want to create, where are you going to use them?

I am implementing a portal. when I posted this, I thought adding users thru webmin would be the way to go. Now I see that adding them thru portal at signup is the way.

thanks for the reply.

When you say a portal, do you mean a web portal?
Don't confuse websites or CMS with unix users.

So, no need for unix users, all are in SQL database.
