CentOS 7 Allow User to Run Any Commands Anywhere (visudo)
In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to provide permission to run any commands (sudo commands too) anywhere. Let’s start.
To provide permission to run any commands, we need to do it from
visudo file. Run this command to open the sudo configuration file:
Now search for these two lines:
## Same thing without a password # %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
After those two lines, add this line:
apache ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
apache with your desired username. After adding that line, it should look like this:
## Allows people in group wheel to run all commands %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL ## Same thing without a password # %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL apache ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
We have completed all the tasks. Now restart your webserver.
Now the user can run any commands anywhere like the
# Apache sudo systemctl restart httpd # Nginx sudo systemctl restart nginx
rootuser. Thanks for reading. ?
