User, and Group Management


#1

I have attempted to add users and groups to the terminal once I logged on with my webminal account credentials, and it gave me an error saying I didn’t have the permissions, so I tried to go into superuser mode, by using the su command. I know that there I would have administrative privileges and would be able to create them there, but when it asked for my password, I was no able to authenticate and cannot access su mode. how can I create users and groups on this terminal?

And also, I just tried to make a directory. permission denied. Can I even do anything on this thing?

Welcome to Webminal.

You have permission to run commands on virtual environment not on server itself. Since its a shared platform, we don’t provide root access for the server itself. As we mentioned during login Partial sudo platform available - drop us a mail

What’s your username, we will enable the access. After that, you need to ‘wmsudo’ to launch the platform and ‘poweroff’ to leave the platform from your terminal.
