In FreeBSD by default you do not have bash as shell prompt.

Here is the procedure to install it:

  1. type whereis bash
  2. cd to that folder
  3. type make configure
  4. make all install clean
  5. take a cofee 😉
  6. type chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash root to change the shell for root or replace root with username you want to change the shell.
  7. Then relogin (logout and login) to enjoy bash shell
