Can you confirm your email address ?

The email address on the account? I’m not pasting it here.

Yes, Its there but its starts with “Junk” I want to confirm whether its valid id or some temp. id? Write to us efgadmin AT webminal DOT org for validation from your email. Password details will shared on that email. Also was this account created in 2019? Did you tried some rm -rf recently?

Thanks, I’ve sent an email.

The /home/ directory should be read only for my user though so I shouldn’t have been able to remove it that way.

Thanks for the confirmation. We received your email. I’m not quite sure why your home directory went missing. I don’t think I can recover your home dir data but I can create new home empty directory, will that work for you?

Yes, that would be absolutly fine.

I’m having the same problem. My home directory is missing and I’m getting an our of memory command when I am doing something as simple as creating a directory.

Can you recreate my home directory as well. There is ‘nothing’ there that I want to save so you can create an empty new one for me as well.

Can you check now and tell me whether it works now or not.

@TG0000 , I replied to your email.

It’s working. Thank you so much for your quick reply !
Whatever you did fixed both my home directory, and it linked my account to the forum here :slight_smile:

It’s working for me now.

Would you also be able to set the login shell to bash? it appears to be missing from my passwd entry

-sh-4.2$ getent passwd Baggypants     

I thought that I replied to this a couple of days ago. In any case thank you so much. It is working perfectly now.

Thanks for the confirmation @TG0000 Glad to know it works.

@Baggypants Can you try again, it should work now.
