Run entire shell script as root

#!/usr/bin/sudo /bin/bash
Placing sudo in the shebang line of a shell script runs the entire thing as root. Useful for scripts designed to, e.g. automate system upgrades or package manager wrappers — makes prepending everything with sudo no longer necessary

A possible solution is to run the whole script using sudo, and to give that use sudo rights to exectute the scripts. In order to do that, you need to edit the /etc/sudoers file using the visudo command. [lost social security card](https://online-application.org/social-security-cards/lost/)

the best thing is to put only the requires commands in the shell script. And then setuid the script itself, like this (using root): chmod u+s myscript.sh. lost social security card
