Installing sudo package on the LAMP server

ahkaplan's picture

Hi there --

I have completed the installation of the LAMP server, and one package that I am hoping to install is the sudo software. I want to be able to have a non-root user be able to run commands. When I entered the command apt-get install sudo, the package could not be found by the system. I have confirmed the system has the ability to access the Internet. 

Do I need to modify the available repositories, and if so, what are the file(s) in question, and what is the correct syntax needed here?

Probably just need to update package lists

Do this by running

apt-get update

Then you can run

apt-get install sudo
