This question already has an answer here:
I’m using Ubuntu 14.04. I have this in my /etc/sudoers file
Defaults env_reset Defaults mail_badpass Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin" # Host alias specification # User alias specification # Cmnd alias specification # User privilege specification root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL # Members of the admin group may gain root privileges %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL %deployers ALL=(ALL) ALL rails ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.3.0/bin/bundle, /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.3.0/bin/ruby, /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.3.0/bin/rake, /usr/bin/service, /sbin/ restart # Allow members of group sudo to execute any command %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
I thought including the above command (the one with “NOPASSWD”) would prevent getting prompted for a password, but after I reboot my system and login as my “rails” user, note I’m still getting asked for a password when running sudo …
rails@mymachine:~$ sudo rake db:migrate [sudo] password for rails: rails@mymachine:~$ which rake /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.3.0/bin/rake
What do I need to do so I’m not prompted for a password when running the “rake” command (and other commands I listed)?
