Till, I've done some looking around on sudo and it would seem even if I add admispconfig to the /etc/sudoers file according to the howto, I still need to type "sudo" to run the du command, the only difference is I don't need a password.

So instead of the

du -h --max-depth=1

command you asked me to test with, which still says permission denied. I tried the line :

sudo du -h --max-depth=1

and that worked beautifully. Is this in fact how it's supposed to work? If so is there a bug in ispconfig that's calling that command incorrectly when I turn on that option in the file? Should it be calling it via "sudo du -h --max-depth=1" instead of just "du -h --max-depth=1" ?

Maybe this is just for Centos as well? But it would seem my /etc/sudoers file does work as the NOPASSWD option certainly is working.

1) add the admispconfig settings for sudo.
2) run:

su admispconfig

to become ispconfig user, so you get the same resiults as the controlpanel. Then change to a web directory:

cd /var/www/

and execute the command:

du -h --max-depth=1

and check if the output is correct or if you get any error messages. ISPConfig is just displaying the output of this cammend in the interface.
