Additional web login

I have a new IT intern starting today at my company, and I want to give him read only access to the web interface of IPFire, how would I set up that user for that purpose? Is it as simple as using useradd on the shell, not giving them shell access, or is there a separate area for adding and managing users?

The handling of the web interface user is a bit more complicated. Also, this thread.

In short, I think you need to modify apache authentication and possibly also the access control. Keep also in mind that those system files are going to be written back to their default content at each IPFire update.
