I Cannot Add User To A Group Permanently

Hello Everyone,

I’m using a CentOS 7 server. I tried to add my own user to group ‘apache’
and it works temporarily. When I SSH to it later, I found my user not a member of group ‘apache’. What’s wrong with it?
Thanks.

Sincerely, Xuwen

  • Are you using “newgrp”? That tool starts a new session wherein the user is a member of a new group. Permanent addition should be “usermod -a -G
    $group $user”
