Can't su into unprivileged user when following documentation
|Reported by:||Daniel Krol||Owned by:|
The documentation says to create a system user for the unprivileged user that runs mediagoblin. On my system, this meant that I couldn't su into it (and there was no error message when I tried and failed). Looking around online, it sounds like this is intentional. If it's a system user, it's not meant to have a shell. Its shell is /bin/false. So here's a way to do it anyway:
sudo su - mediagoblin -s /bin/bash
su - mediagoblin -s /bin/bash
I'm on Debian 7.
