hai to all
i have created a bash script called useradding to add user in my fedora system ,when i execute that script as ./useradding it creates a user in my system without prompting any thing because i have specified encryped password in that script ,it works fine and i can able to login with that user name and password clearly ,
And i am handling a mail server so i have designed a php page ,so when i call my bash script form my browser it is not creating any user in my system ,before that i have already given permission for apache to execute useradd command by editing visudo file
And i am getting error in apache error log as unable to lock password file" and also "sudo command need tty to run,"
my scripts are as follows
(sample script examples)
#script name ----useradding in fedora
and i have used passthru ,system,commands of php ..nothing is working
any ideas,suggestions will be helpful to me
You should use the [ CODE ] tags. They make code and configs stand out and infinitely easier to read.
As your second error says, sudo needs a terminal to run. I believe there is a sudoers option to lift this restriction (man is your friend). setuid may also help, though you have to be very careful using it.
That said, this is kind of a strange thing you're doing. What's the context of all this?
