How to Create a Sudo User in Rocky Linux 8

The root user has full control of the operating system and it has privileges to run administrative commands like installing, removing, and updating software packages, changing permissions, and configuring different services. The non-root users have limited interactions with an operating system environment and they can perform only user-specific tasks.
