I'm trying to create new users on my Media Temple (dv) 3.5 who have the same access as a beta account. The reason for this is so my development team can use GitHub for source management without breaking permissions and such.
I was able to figure out how to create the users, but when I try to connect to GitHub using
ssh -vT firstname.lastname@example.org I'm getting an error.
The home directory I've created is at
/var/www/vhosts/beta.domain/web_users/username -- when I log in,
cd ~ puts me in the right place.
However, when I try to connect to GitHub, it's looking for
/var/www/vhosts/beta.domain/.ssh instead of
I used this command to create the user:
useradd -d /var/www/vhosts/beta.domain/web_users/username -m -ou 10001 -g psacln -s /bin/bash username
Have I missed a step? I've only been dealing in the command line for a short time, and this is my first time dealing with new users. Any help is hugely appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Here's what I'm finding in $HOME:
[email@example.com ~]$ echo $HOME /var/www/vhosts/beta.domain/web_users/username
This is the output from
ssh -vT firstname.lastname@example.org:
