Q. Can you tell me how to configure sudo to provide access to end users? How do I allow to run programs with the security privileges of another user using sudo?
A. sudo works under Linux / Mac OS X and all UNIX like operating systems. Sudo allows you to delegate authority to give certain users or groups of users the ability to run some commands as root or another user while providing an audit trail of the commands and their arguments via a log file. With sudo you don’t have to share root password with anybody.
See our previous tutorial on configuring and using sudo under Linux / UNIX operating systems.
