Quick tip: Add a user to the sudoers group

Situation: A new user on your server needs to have admin, or ‘root’ user access. Rather than enabling the root account, or giving out the¬†password details to your elevated account, add the new user to the sudoers group, and hey presto – they will get sudo access with their own account and password: usermod -aG sudo <username_of_person_you_want_to_give_root_to>
