Setting a new user for login
Unfortunatelly I cannot find a tutorial or question about this use case: once I created a user with root privileges, I want to configure my server in order to login only as this new user by default.
But still it is showing the user root by default -“Using username root” when it has yo say “Using name <my_new_uname>”-. I have to say that I’ve configured ssh keys in my server, and both users (the root and the new one) have their public keys in its respective locations.
How can I deal with this issue?
