trouble creating a user
i just got a new dedicated server. i thought i had the linux thing down but i seem to not.
i tried to create a user logged in as root (via shell server)
useradd -g groupname -p newuser_password newusername
but i can't seem to login as 'newusername'
is there more parameters i should put in? (this is on centos 4.x)
(before i had webmin installed on my other server and used its thing to create users, i decided this time to see if i can do it without webmin or any CPs to get more skilled)
edit: but i CAN login as root, and do su newusername and that works, but thats still not what i want obviosuly)
