How to add a user.
Posted by Mike C. on 11 September 2009 09:35 PM
When a person first gets his/her box and tries to add a user sometimes they are confronted with a set of questions thats doesn't make sense to them. For instance the first time you type "adduser" and go through the options the first couple questions might have to do with regexp's. Don't be alarmed and if you don't know how to answer the question just type "enter" through this. In case you haven't picked up on this you type "adduser" and answer all the questions following it to add a user in FreeBSD. If you want this user to be able to access root on the server you will need to "invite this user in to other group" wheel. I suggest all users that have root access also have their own groups. The questions are fairly straight forward after the initial regexp questions (if they in fact show up).
