Cannot run sudo commands?

Posted 2 years ago by gregrobson

I've just tried to install Linode's Longview on a new Custom VPS set up through Forge. (I've done about 10 times before without issue.) I attempted to run the command…

curl -s<PROVIDED KEY> | sudo bash

…and I get…

Sorry, user forge is not allowed to execute '/bin/bash' as root on <my host name>

I've tried sudo bash on it's own and that doesn't work either. I seem to have lost my sudo/root powers.

Does anyone have an idea A) why this has happened B) whether I can recover my root access, without having root access?*

  • I realise the answer is probably no on that front!
