Hiya all. As I continued to work with my remote server’s shell, a new issue arose. I needed to add a new user to my system.

You will be prompted to enter the password and confirm it.
However, to do all this you need to be root. To do so, before entering any of these, type:
Don’t forget the “–“, because otherwise you will get a “command not found” when you issue “useradd”.
Note: On some systems the command is “adduser” instead of “useradd”.
