I guess I should first say I’m not a programmer, but I can “hack” my way through this stuff. So… I followed the Initial Server Setup Tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-12-04 . After creating the user and adding: “newuser ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL” below the: “root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL” line and I ssh in using the newuser, I am unable to pull up visudo and receive the following error: “visudo: /etc/sudoers: Permission denied”
Any help is appreciated.
