Sudoers file and sudo tipsFollow @ggarron
sudoers file, is one of the most visited articles at Go2Linux.org, so I’m going to expand a little bit that article, by adding this small tips about sudoers file and
Grant root powers
To a single user
Add to the sudoers file
[user] ALL=(ALL) ALL
john ALL=(ALL) ALL
To a group of users
The users need to belong to the given group, you can add the user to a group. Then add this to the sudoers file
[group] ALL=(ALL) ALL
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
sudo every time
If you need to run a lot of programs as root, invoke a shell as root.
Then you can execute all the commands as root, without the need to write sudo each time, when you are finished do not forget to
exit from that shell.
