Linux: Some maintenance

Your linux distribution may run some maintenance jobs or checks daily and you may get things like the following in your email:


'<USERNAME>' is a member of the 'httpd' group in /etc/group but not in /etc/gshadow

The grpconv command creates gshadow from group and an optionally existing gshadow.


$ sudo grpconv



user 'jira': directory '/home/jira' does not exist

Simple create the folder and change its permissions:

$ sudo mkdir /home/jira
$ sudo chown jira:jira /home/jira -Rfv
