Hi, I'm using a acc that I created on the server. I just logged into the shell and it doesn't show the file path, it just shows "$"
Can I somehow let me see the file path in the shell?
This, of course, doesnt have anything to do with PVE as hypervisor and falls under basic Linux system administration.
There are many variable here, I am going to list just a few:
a) you are not using BASH, what does "echo $SHELL" say?
b) you did not set appropriate permissions on .bashrc that you copied from root home, what does "ls -al .bashrc" in your user directory say?
c) you didnt edit/set the PS1 value correctly, review everything again and present actual outputs of files here

good luck
