I have sudo installed on my server. I want to create a new user "syshelp" and allow access to all files in /home/user19/public_html/ access to /etc/my.cnf and usage of mysql with access to User19's database tables
can someone explain the steps in creating a new users "syshelp", password and setting the current sudo settings for the user
You will need to do this in /etc/sudoers file.
You can edit this file with the command visudo. I am not sure what you will need to add in the file, any way you will need something like
syshelp ALL= /usr/sbin/mysqld /etc/my.cnf
