Bash and SSH for users
Ok. I have a new server that is going to be running multiple sites with apache (via Virtual hosts). I would like to setup each site to have both bash and SSH. (test will be the user from here on)
I created a new user...
I then set a specific location as the users $HOME
/var/www/vhosts/demo.com/ (or something like that)
made sure that both apache and the user had access to the contents within home
However when I went to ssh in to the server using this new user i noticed that the shell was just the default sh.
DISCLAIMER: This is where my suspected noobness came in...
I then changed the users shell to bash using the following cmd
usermod -s bash test
once I did this I was no longer able to get ssh access via this user.
SOOO how can I restore this users SSH access and allow it to use bash as its default shell.
A secondary question is how can this user also be give SFTP access with out restricting the other two items (not a requirement just wondering if it fits along the same lines)
