How can I do that?
I got user amira on my Ubuntu 11.4, I want him to able to see / read / write a root user files such as /etc/* and apache files

More From » permissions


The normal way to do this is to add that user to the sudoers file. You can do that this way:

  • Open a terminal and type

    sudo su

  • After entering your admin password type


  • Using the arrow keys, navigate to the bottom of the sudoers file that is now displayed in the terminal

  • Just under the line that looks like:

    root ALL=(ALL) ALL

  • Add

    amira ALL=(ALL) ALL

  • Now press Ctrl+X and press Y when prompted to save

User amira can now use sudo to edit file, permissions and anything an admin user (like the one you used installing your Ubuntu) is capable of doing.
