How to run normal user root user command without sudo in linux


Hi Team,

I have one local user call raj. I have added that user in the sudoers file like below.


Now i am trying to restart the httpd service as raj. I am giving the command below as raj user.

service httpd restart ====> Error

but when i tried like as

sudo service httpd restart -====> working

I need to use the command as service httpd restart not like sudo service httpd restart.

How can i give permission to local user(raj) to run command without sudo.


type sudo before start service

eg. sudo service httpd start


sudo is needed for normal user

otherwise you must change id of user to zero

  1. vim /etc/passwd
    2)change uid of user to zero


i don’t recommend above solution.
