Hi,

I'm trying to commercial sell, using the default and powerful web panel. But How could I disable or hide the Linux pam login, left only Proxmox VE authentication? Apparently pam login is unsafe.

hi,

you cannot remove the pam login method, otherwise the default root user could never login through the web gui again.
but you can make another method the default, just go to datacenter -> Authentication -> Edit the one you want, and enable "default"

also, why do you think the pam login is unsafe?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply buddy. I'm gonna use the web gui for public entrance, it just costs too much time to build a API based custom panel.
As for the safety, well, I'm not sure, but it just feels unsafe for pubic users to guess the linux user password, maybe just psychosomatic, I hope so.

"guess the linux user password"? Then set your password to something generated, e.g.

Code:
$ pwgen -s 64 1
