Debian Wheezy: /etc/sudoers missing

  If you’re looking to add something to the /etc/sudoers file in a Debian Wheezy install, you may find that the file isn’t there! To create the file while logged in as the root user you need to install the sudo package:  
apt-get install sudo
  Once that install completes the file will appear:  
# # This file MUST be edited with the ‘visudo’ command as root. # # Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of # directly modifying this file. # # See the man page for details on how to write a 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 # Allow members of group sudo to execute any command %sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL # See sudoers(5) for more information on “#include” directives: #includedir /etc/sudoers.d
