Creating new directories

  1. Hello there I am currently setting up my dedicated server on putty, Ubuntu 16 and I was wondering how do I make a new file/directory. For example when you log into root you do root then password. I was wanting to do Factions then password. How do I do this?
  2. First of all I would recommend to upgrade Ubuntu to 18.04LTS because next year by april support for ubuntu 16.04 will be dropped.
    Do you mean smth like a password protected folder? Or just a normal folder that'd be mkdir yourfoldername
  3. Perhaps instead of using root, create a new user for factions and then chroot it to it’s directory. Then, only you (presumably the owner), have access to root, and therefore all directories. You then give the factions login to whoever needs access to it. Just a warning though, this concept will really only work for sftp.
