How to change user login shell to bash in Linux

Newly created users in Debian and Centos Linux will have the default shell "sh" as seen below:
Code:
$ echo $SHELL
/bin/sh


Only root user or a sudo enabled non-root user will be able to change shells. The Linux command to change a user's login shell is "chsh".

Code:
# chsh -s /bin/bash MYUSER
