Create a Service User

For security reason, it is highly recommended to run Pydio Cells with a dedicated "unprivileged" user. 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
