Everytime I try to install phpmyadmin or enable mod rewrite I get an error

  • Posted August 17, 2013

This is the error:

sudo: parse error in /etc/sudoers near line 1 sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting sudo: unable to initialize policy plugin

I have tried apt-get update and still the same.

<b>“sudo: parse error in /etc/sudoers near line 1”</b> <br> <br>Can you copy 'n paste, here, line 1 of <code>/etc/sudoers</code>?

Did you edit /etc/sudoers manually? You should edit it using visudo instead: <br> <br><pre>EDITOR=nano visudo</pre>
