Overview

This interface allows you to manage the wheel group's membership. The system grants users in the wheel group the permission to execute the su command, which allows a user to gain root or superuser access.

Warning
titleImportant:
  • This interface does not grant users permission to run the sudo command. To grant users permission to execute the sudo command, open the /etc/sudoers file and uncomment the following line:

    Code Block
    languageruby
    %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL


  • We strongly suggest that you use the visudo command to open the /etc/sudoers file. The visudo command opens the /etc/sudoers file in a text editor and validates the file's syntax when you save your changes. For more information about the visudo command, read sudo.ws's Visudo Manual documentation.
