I know that I shouldn't log in remotely as root via ssh, but how can I
start/stop networking daemons or manipulate config files in the /etc
without this level of access? Should I use something like webmin
instead? Can I create a user that has write privileges in the /etc
directory and should this user be capable of starting /stopping network
daemons? Just looking for direction on this subject.
