This is something very basic but I, not being a sysadmin, so rarely do it that I thought I’d document it.
To add a new user:
sudo adduser --home /home/ksclarke --shell /bin/bash --groups wheel,apache,users ksclarke
To remove that user (including their home directory):
sudo userdel -r ksclarke
Lastly, you might want to add that user’s public key to their authorized keys list (using
nano to copy and paste it in):
sudo mkdir /home/ksclarke/.ssh sudo nano /home/ksclarke/.ssh/authorized_keys sudo chown -R ksclarke:ksclarke /home/ksclarke/.ssh sudo chmod 700 /home/ksclarke/.ssh sudo chmod 600 /home/ksclarke/.ssh/authorized_keys
