cpanel ssh sudo command

Shared Linux hosting with cpanel.


I have tried using the command sudo ./ to install an application.  The command returns sudo not found.  I found I can use sh ./ which returns that I do not have root.  Can you enable root for a shared linux hosting account? and how. And or can you request go daddy to install the selected app?

Re: cpanel ssh sudo command

Hi @jwvrga29, it looks like that particular command requires root access to the server in order to function.  You would not have that level of access on a shared hosting plan.  If you needed superuser/root level access, that would have to be done on either a VPS or Dedicated Server plan.
