My server is installed by my provider with a default user (root and another user, lets say here johndoe). I lack some experience to know if everything is well set. Let's say I add the group admin. Then I need to add johndoe to this group. I end up with the following when I read /etc/group :
... **johndoe**:x:1000: ... admin:x:1001:**johndoe**
This numbers, with the letters… I just don't have a clue. The admin's group is set with the following :
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
I need to give johndoe the most privileges possible; do I have anything else to do? Hope my question is not too random.
