error trying to add new user
« on: May 08, 2015, 10:13:40 AM »
Hi I have a fresh install I have checked my shared ip which is correct, for the name servers I assume I can use my domain name servers?

I have created a package - and then noticed a package is already created - Default

when I try to add a new user I get Warning! Username mikejs2 already exists in /etc/passwd! so no user gets added there is only one user I created prior to install

any suggestions ?

thanks
Mike

Ok so it looks like it was because I was trying to use a secure password - any reason why special chars are not allowed for passwords ? a brute force attack could find most number letter passwords in a short period of time

I have the same problem, however changing the password to alphanumeric does not solve the issue.

The error I get is:
Code: [Select]
Warning! Username digo already exists in /etc/passwd!
The thing is I already have a user called digosupe for another project. It seems that you are doing a preg_match on the /etc/passwd and "digosupe" already matches "digo"?
