    Hi,

    Is it possible to have it so 2 people can access root WHM with different username and passwords, if so how would I go about doing this ?

    Regards,
    Garry

    Go on, have a guess
    The only way is to configure two resellers and then afford them full reseller privileges. However, IIRC, this will not give them the total equivalent access to all functions that root has - only logging in as root does that.

    As chirpy said, one of the users would have to be on a reseller-level WHM. Then you would go into:

    Main >> Resellers >> Reseller Center

    Select the reseller and click "Edit Privileges/Nameservers". Under Global Privs you'll find a checkbox for Restart Services.
