    How can I give a user full privilege to manage ftp server by editing sudoers?

    I am really new at this and I have been trying a couple of days to make this work but couldn't do it and about to go crazy.
    I have to assign a user to manage ftp server in linux by editing sudoers file.
    I have been searching for a solution for this all over the place but can't find a right solution.
    Can someone help me with this, please?
    Sorry to ask this kind of question but I am really desparate right now.
    Please help me.....

    Thank you!

    Ok, I somehow figured out how to do a part of it.
    I edited sudoers to start, stop ftp service and allowed user to edit any files in vsftpd.
    Now another problem.
    I cannot add users or groups to ftp server....
    I add a line "Cmnd_Alias COM = /usr/sbin/* [A-z]*", but whenever I run sudo useradd ***, it says can't find this command.
    Can Anybody help me this time???
    Thanks in advance...
