    I have an application I use regularly that always requires privileged admin access to run. Is there any way to grant this app permanent privileges?

    It's XAMPP. Whenever I start Apache, it requires my password.

    It's technically possible to do via the sudoers files, but I don't really recommend it, you can mess things up a bit if you screw it up.

    That worked perfect. Thanks for the suggestion. I gave my account nopasswd sudo permissions to run a shell script I wrote that starts up the XAMPP Control Panel. Told terminal to close the window automatically. Works like a charm!
