I have vps.
I want to change my shell from sh sell to tcsh shell

I have tried to this in /etc/passwd
dentalqna:x:****:***::/home/dentalqna:/usr/local/bin/tcsh
(I have installed tcsh under /usr/local/tcsh)

but it's not work

I know $setenv in tcsh to change shell
but it's not work in sh shell now

anybody done before this problem???

did you install tcsh? it isn't part of the vps by default. also, you probably can't change the shell of the default account by yourself, you'll need to ask westhost to do that for you. but your method work for any other user account.
