I'm trying to add my new user to the sudo group on my Linux VPS but for some reason I can't access the file "/etc/sudoers", it says permissions denied any ideas?
You don't need the file /etc/sudoers to become sudo, just login as root and type:
adduser <your-name> sudo
then login to the user you just added to the sudo group and you should be able to do sudo tasks.
FYI, the file /etc/sudoers can be accessed if you're logged in as root in case you need to view it for instance.
Thanks guys 🙂
