Bash autocomplete is turned off by default in Torrent Server

Gah! Can't believe this feature is turned off in stock installations of Torrent Server. :)
Thankfully Ubuntu documentation is a plenty

To enable smart completion, edit your /etc/bash.bashrc file. Uncomment the following lines, by removing the # in the beginning of the lines:

#if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
# . /etc/bash_completion

Update: hmmm got bash completion to work for admin user but not the ionguest .. suspect is some bash issues :(

Update 2: yes the reason is because the default bash login shell is /bin/sh and not /bin/bash which you can change using the chsh command
