Set/change default password

When logged in as pi (the default user), enter passwd in a terminal

Adding users

In a terminal, enter sudo adduser username

Configure autostart items

One method is to create a configuration file that is unique to the currently logged in user. First you need to edit this text file:

sudo nano ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

This file represents a list of commands to be executed when the GUI loads. It is usually blank when you first edit it so just add the applications you need to auto-load: @lxterminal @leafpad To save and exit the nano editor press CTRL-X, Y and then ENTER.

Restart Apache HTTP Server
