Using root is dangerous.
enter root password
You should really use visudo to edit the file. It takes care of
things like locking the file, (not really needed on a one-admin
system) and adding some syntax checking. It also defaults to the
correct file name.
go to the line which saysOne fairly easy way is to give access to a specific group, and then
## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
under that enter your username <tab> All=(ALL) <tab> ALL
where <tab> is the tab key.
esc wq! to save and quit
When you need root access from a terminal type sudo <some command> and
it will ask for your user password.
type exit or close the terminal to exit sudo.
There are probably better ways but this works for me.
make the users you want to be able to use sudo members of that
group. There is an example you can uncomment in /etc/sudoers.
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
Another way, that you may find easier to maintain is to put this
part of the configuration in a file in /etc/suduers.d...
