Historically, projects have used the
root user with a working directory of
/root/sandbox. We decided to use this user years ago to prevent issues with permissions, and while it worked at the time, we realized that using the
root user caused some issues:
- It doesn’t accurately portray the real-world situations outside of our environment.
- Many programs refuse to run as
rootinitially and require to be overridden to allow it.
As such, we’ve migrated to a new user called
nt-user (Next Tech user) and working directory at
/home/nt-user/workspace. This user still has
sudo access, so they can still do anything
root previously could!
Old content has not been updated to use this new user and will continue to function as always. Future content will use nt-user.
