How to: Administration: Manage users

Preset users

To make server management more convenient, we have preset two types of users with access details for each one:

  • root – Root access is an administrative super user for accessing and editing anything at any time.
  • developer – Developer Access. This type of user has limited access to the files of the project, namely the ability to edit the project files. You can give this access to the developers working on your store.

You can find access information in the confirmation email after we notify you of successful hosting creation.

You can also manage users:

  • view users list
  • create new users
  • delete users
  • reset passwords.

Feel free to contact us in case you need help with user management. We will sort things out.

Important

  1. If a user provides an incorrect password more than 5 times, he will be blocked. If this happens, contact us and we will unblock him. Security comes first.
  2. We strongly recommend NOT to provide root access to third-parties.

User management

Viewing users list

Connect to the server under the root user.

Run this command:

manageusers list

You will see the list of users.

Adding a user

For instance, let’s create a user with the user name “support”.

Connect to the server under the root user.

Run this command:

manageusers add [USERNAME]

You will see the created user and his password.

Deleting a user

Connect to the server under the root user.

Run this command:

manageusers remove [USERNAME]

You will see the status of deletion and current list of users.

Resetting a password

For security reasons, we have added an ability to reset a password. We generate a new secure password right away.

Connect to the server under the root user.

Run this command:

manageusers reset [USERNAME]

You will see a new generated password.
