Why does it keep saying "mike is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported." i cannot follow along.
It comes up with this error any time I write a sudo command when logged in as mike. It doesn't do it for treehouse. I checked online for fixes but they are not working.

not every user is allowed to use sudo. If you need to switch to user treehouse then just switch user.
su - treehouse

I was having the same problem. I ended up changing back the permissions to 777 from user mike and then I logged on as user treehouse to change the owner back to treehouse. Once the owner was changed, I updated the permissions back to where they should be.
