hello folks, you have a real newbie on your hands here. I recently opened a dedicated redhatlinux 7.2, W apache server to host websites for artists in my community, Ive had a few bumps getting started. I am tring to set up mail for a new user, and have discovered that there doesn't appear to be binbash logout profile rc cs emacs or screenrc files in their home directory. - BUT there are these files in another users directory, but they are for an id that I used in an earlier attempt to set up the new user.
so user 502 has "binbash,logout,profile" et all files in a home directory that is document root for my web page. but user 503 doesnt seem to have these files anywhere.
Im assuiming this is a real mess - and want to clean it up before i add a new user. I have root, but was wondering if I could create a new user for the id 502 (in my webmin user list no 502 user is listed) and then somehow re-create those files for user 503 in their home directory.
