The built-in <citerefentry><refentrytitle>su</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> framework works well for single systems or small networks with just one system administrator. An alternative is to install the <package>security/sudo</package> package or port. This software provides activity logging and allows the administrator to configure which users can run which commands as the superuser.
Managing Accounts

The recommended program for adding new users is <citerefentry><refentrytitle>adduser</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry>. When a new user is added, this program automatically updates <filename>/etc/passwd</filename> and <filename>/etc/group</filename>. It also creates a home directory for the new user, copies in the default configuration files from <filename>/usr/share/skel</filename>, and can optionally mail the new user a welcome message. This utility must be run as the superuser.
The <citerefentry><refentrytitle>adduser</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry> utility is interactive and walks through the steps for creating a new user account. As seen in <xref linkend="users-modifying-adduser"/>, either input the required information or press <keycap>Return</keycap> to accept the default value shown in square brackets. In this example, the user has been invited into the <systemitem class="groupname">wheel</systemitem> group, allowing them to become the superuser with <citerefentry><refentrytitle>su</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>. When finished, the utility will prompt to either create another user or to exit.
