What does it mean Root's console, command line?


(Stefan) #1

In the manual are some reference to use the root’s console or the command line to exectude a command. Does it mean I have to work direct on the server or can I do it remotely from another computer or via internet?
If yes, how can I do it?
I can’t find a command line in the NethServer GUI.


Command line from web UI (Server Manager)

Hi @WillZen you can work both locally, behind the system console, and remotely through an SSH connection. Both methods are good.

As you experienced, there is (still) no command line in the Server Manager (NethServer GUI).

The links from @AbsyntH are very good points to begin with.

@Nas
Sorry. I did know what a root’s console is but I couldn’t figure out what exat I have to do. My headline was misleading.
