sudo for write access to a single file [Jan. 4th, 2010|09:27 am]


Can sudo be used to grant write access to a single file? I've granted sudoer access to a script, but this script writes to a log file. Currently the log file is chmod 644, and sudoers are unable to use the script due to incorrect permissions on the log file. I could chmod 666 to everyone, but that would be problematic.

chown the file to whatever group sudoers is and make it 664.

Traditionally it's wheel I think, but that might be distro specific
