Change Login Page text

Post by andyhud » 02 Jul 2019 11:13

Hi Guys

I have LDAP Auth working now, but all my users login with their email address (which is the same as their UPN) in Active Directory

Ideally I'd like to change the text below from "User:" to "Email Address:" as it makes more sense for the users to understand

I assume its just text in a file somewhere but is it possible? and if so, does anyone know which file its in?

Many thanks

Hi Andy

I would send a corperate email with the same content to inform users. :idea:
But if you want to change some text, take a look at

Code: Select all

Make a backup of this file in case you messed up and end up with a broken gui.

To make life easy and a bit more safe :dance:
. disable rootlogin
. login with the user you created when installing efa
. su - ( after login)
. install mc ( yum install mc) as you are used to a gui

. the best free program for this to access and drag and drop files to your efa machine
now you can create a ssh session with he user you created when installing efa and save it.
