Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: exec() problem

  1. #1

    exec() problem

    I need to call exec(/usr/sbin/adduser -g pppusers -d /home/tester -s /sbin/nologin -p test tester) from my php page, but it doesn't seem to work, and since addusers doesn't give an output, there's no real way of me debugging this. I'm thinking it's the call\perameters, but not sure. Basically, I need the page to add the user to the system with the perameters. If anyone knows of a better way, then I'd love to know. BTW, yes, I am 100% I want to add the users to my /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files in my server, I am aware of the risks this could pose...

    Thank you
