Awhile back I tried out FreeBSD for a couple months. I was used to SuSE (which I’m back to) so I ran a few commands to make my environment a bit more familiar. If you are a recent convert, you can use this code too.
chsh change shell to bash (used sysinstall to install bash)
ln -s /etc/periodic/weekly/310.locate /bin/updatedb (for locate)
pw user mod chrissy -G wheel (for su to work)
alternatively, I could have done this:
edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config add PermitRootLogin YES
but I didnt.
edit /etc/rc.conf add apache_enable=”yes”
edit .profile add PS1=”\h:\w ”
edit .profile add alias dir=”ls -la”
made note that restart scripts are in here: /etc/rc.d/
