Sudo in Debian

This is very simple.

  • Log in as root, then:
apt-get install sudo
  • Add the following line under the line that has “root” at the beginning.
username ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

This will give total permissions to this user. If you want to know how to limit the amount of permissions, please google it.
