I have an issue with giving a user full permissions to control the server the same as root. I created a user and gave permissions, but when I turned the use of DNS off I got the user out of editing everything.
I followed this tut here to create a user: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-and-delete-users-on-ubuntu-12-04-and-centos-6
now I'm locked out and can't use root as well as the user itself.
even through the SFTP the user can't get in to edit any file.
is there a method on how to add a user and give that user full permissions the same as root.
I searched around the net, but the solutions are not really doing any of the job since they are messy to some level and not accurate.
