I am running an Ubuntu server using Amazon AWS and I am trying to allow www-data to run a specific file that will push code to my git repository.
The file is under /var/ and I named it push.sh. I made a file under sudoers.d and added the following line using visudo:
www-data ALL=NOPASSWD: /var/push.sh
Whenever I run
sudo -u www-data sudo -l
I get the following response, "User www-data may run the following commands on (serverip): (root) NOPASSWD: /var/push.sh". However when I try to run this code
sudo -u www-data sudo sh /var/push.sh
I am being asked to enter a password for www-data.
Also when I make a php file to run the code using shell_exec
works fine, but
sudo sh /var/push.sh
does not. I would do it this way but the problem is I need to use sudo in order for the git to push properly.
I am probably missing something simple but I've been stuck on this for hours. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
P.S. let me know if i need to give more information
