This post will show you the steps necessary to create a user account in linux/unix systems. in my example I will be creating the following:
username: login_name (do not use spaces)
password: Myp@ssword (its a good idea to use upper case and characters)NOTE:
you must be logged in as root in order to create another user.
1. Login as root
2. Enter the following at the shell promptFOR MOST REDHAT DISTRIBUTIONS:
adduser login_nameFOR MOST SuSE ENVIRONMETNS:
useradd -m login_name
3. Next, you need to give the new user a password for the new account. Enter the following command
4. You will be asked to enter a password for login_name
5. Afer you have entered the password, you will be asked to re-enter the password. If both passwords don't match, you will get an error. Otherwise, Congratulations! you have created a new account in you linux system.
