Adding New User Accounts

/!\ Please note: The administration pages have all been migrated to the new PSF Systems Wiki. Please no longer add information to these pages. If you need access to the new wiki, please contact for details.

Only logins using SSH authentication are allowed; password-authenticated logins are not supported.

  1. Create the user account. The Debian tool for doing this is useradd:

    sudo useradd -G svnusers,webmaster -c "<full name>" -m <account-name>
  2. Create the user's SSH authorization keys.

    cd ~<account-name>
    mkdir .ssh
    chmod 700 .ssh/
    jed .ssh/authorized_keys2
    chmod 600 .ssh/authorized_keys2
