I have created a new user on my remote linux CentOS server named "hlds". I used the useradd command. When I made it I did create a password using the parameter -p <password> however I am unable to log in as this user when I ssh into the server. I have to log in as root, then SU into the user. It also has no bash history when I log onto it - I have had this problem and was able to resolve it using the usermod command, but I forgot the parameters and information I put.
I hope somebody here can help me log in - and have a bash history too (when you hit up to get previous commands). If I have missed anything please do ask me for more, and I will be happy to provide it.
Thanks in advance,
