Could not chdir to home directory /home/username
I created the user by the next command: useradd username,
then set password for it.
But when I login to the system, I see the next message:
“could not chdir to home directory /home/username no such file or directory”.
What does it mean? Moreover I cannot use the history command and also cannot edit bashsrc file for this user.
How can I solve the problem?
