|Ending a user session|
How do I end a specific user's session that is staying open. I've tried doing it through the database with no luck. I use putty to access the ssh (don't know if that makes a difference). Thank you.
Do you mean disconnect their ssh session? You need to find what tty they're on (using the w command), then find the process id of their shell like this: ps ax ¦ grep pts/1
Then as root, kill -9 the process id.
Be nice and try kill -1 before nuking it, please.
killall -u username
pkill -u username
pkill lets you specify the signal the same way as kill (-9 for example) whereas killall uses a -s or --signal switch.
