(Sorry for the inconvenience)

For security reasons, PC-BSD will not let you login as the root user; instead it will prompt you for the administrative password whenever it is needed to perform a system task. This means that you need to create a user account that you will use to login to your system.

Figure 4.5a shows the configuration screen used to create the initial user account.

This screen requires you to complete the following fields:

  • Name: this value will be displayed in the login screen. It can be your full name and can contain capital letters and spaces.
  • Username: this is the name you will use when logging in. Can not contain spaces and is case sensitive (e.g. Kris is a different username than kris).
  • Password: this is the password you will use when logging in. You must type it twice in order to confirm it.

If you share your computer with other users, you will be able to create additional user accounts once you are logged in using Control Panel -> User Manager.

Once you complete the information in this screen and press Next, the screen in Figure 4.5b indicates that the post-installation setup is complete.
