Create a service user

WARNING This documentation is for Cells v2. Looking for Pydio Cells v3 docs?

For security reason, it is highly recommended to run Pydio Cells with a dedicated "unpriviledge" user. Basically, never run Cells as "root"!

In this guide, we use a dedicated user pydio and its home directory /home/pydio.

In order to create a new user and its home directory execute this command:

sudo useradd -m -s /bin/bash pydio
