How do I create a new User Account on the Bitnami SVN Virtual Machine such that the new user account doesn’t get “-sh svn: not found” when “svn” is type into the console.

I would also like to know how to basically create a new user that operates with the same rights and priviledges or capabilities as the default “bitnami” user.

Thanks

Hi,

It is necessary to copy the “.bashrc” file from the bitnami user home to the new user home. Try to copy this file and re-login in the appliance as the new user.

Hello beltran,

First of all thank-you for the replies. I copied the .bashrc file from the bitnami user home to my new user home and then re-logged in account to my new user account. I could not resolve the problem of “svn: not found”. I did this twice; once from my new users account and then once from my bitnami account. Another symptom is that my up arrow key does not read my .bash_history file instead I get ^[[A for each up aqrrow keypress. I have to type “bash” at the command prompt to resolve this. Therefore I assume that my .bashrc file is not being executed and therefore not setting my path and therefore not seeing my SVN installation and allowing me to execute the binary.

Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

My goal is to set up multiple accounts one for each developer who can either log-in to the console or login via SSH ultimately using RSA keys to authenticate and access SVN via the SVN+SSH protocal scheme.

Thanks KLJ

Hi,

Ok, just add the following in the user “.bashrc” file:


PATH=/opt/bitnami/subversion/bin:$PATH
export PATH
