Install: User Account

1. Forward

You will NOT use root to setup Cloudbox, as Cloudbox installs certain things to /home/USER/ folder, where as, root uses /root/ as it's home folder. This will definitely break the install.

Instead, you can use the guide below to create a non-root user account and use that going forward.

TLDR: Do not use root to install Cloudbox.

2. Setup

Choose ONE of the following:

i. Create a new user account seed (default)

  • In this step, you will create the user account seed and add it to the seed and sudo groups.

    Note: Run the following commands line by line.

    sudo useradd -m seed
    sudo usermod -aG sudo seed
    sudo passwd seed
    sudo chsh -s /bin/bash seed
    su seed

Note: If you have an existing user account that you don't plan on using, it may be a good idea to remove it and just stick with using seed for everything.

ii. Create new user account other than seed

  • Run the following commands line by line:

    sudo useradd -m <username>
    sudo usermod -aG sudo <username>
    sudo passwd <username>
    sudo chsh -s /bin/bash <username>
    su <username>
  • Set user in accounts.yml to your username.

Note: If you decide to change your username after Cloudbox install, you will need to update the service.d files with your new username/group, see FAQ.

iii. Use an existing (non-root) user account

  • Run the following command:

    sudo usermod -aG sudo <username>
    sudo usermod -aG <username> <username>

    Note: This will set the group to the same name as your user account, which is required.

  • Set user in accounts.yml to your username.

Note: If you decide to change your username after Cloudbox install, you will need to update the service.d files with your new username/group, see FAQ.

3. SSH Access

From now on, you will log into your server with the above account (not with root).

Example:

ssh user@serveripaddress

Eventually, the server IP address can be replaced with cloudbox.domain.com (or mediabox.domain.com and feederbox.domain.com for Mediabox/Feederbox setups).
