Ubuntu: Automatic login for Ubuntu Server 15.04



Question:

I know that this is not a very secure way to operate a server, but it is for a personal server that is on a private network. I would prefer that it auto logs in so I don't have to attach a keyboard for this sole purpose after the system reboots, and can just go straight to ssh-ing into the machine (no clue if that is a correct term).


Solution:1

If you're going to ssh into the server, you don't need to have anyone logged into the computer, you just need to install an ssh server.

I don't understand why you need an auto login, but if that's really what you need, this is an excellent guide.

All it requires is for you to modify a few configuration files.

If it what you want is to not enter a password everytime you ssh into the server, then this explains how to do so:
