restart a daemon service

I have created a daemon service and start it as a root.

Is it possible for a particular user to restart the daemon, which is "service mydaemon restart" ?

You should be able to do this using "visudo", add the username followed by the service to it like so:
<user_name> ALL = /etc/init.d/<service> 

Open in new window

If you want the user not to have to use or provide a password for restarting the service then write it like this:
<user_name> ALL = NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/<service> 

Open in new window

This  should allow the user given access to start/stop the service with:
sudo /etc/init.d/<service> start

Open in new window
