Linux Tip – When you forget to use sudo
This happens a lot to me, I usually forget to start a command with
sudo, and therefore I had to run it again.
If you run into this problem run:
And the last command run, will be run again but this time with the command
sudo in front of it.
[user@myhost ~]$ /etc/rc.d/sshd restart :: Stopping Secure Shell Daemon [FAIL] :: Starting Secure Shell Daemon [FAIL] [user@myhost ~]$ sudo !! sudo /etc/rc.d/sshd restart Password: :: Stopping Secure Shell Daemon [DONE] :: Starting Secure Shell Daemon [DONE]
In the example above, I entered the command without
sudo command and ssh daemon failed to restart. After that, I just entered the command
sudo !! and it asked for my password, and this time worked.
