    Each time a new account is created WHM gives all the privileges to "root" user, not my primary domain user. How do I change this? OOO also, I believe this primary domain is also my primary reseller because I checked that box during initial setup.

    If I want to access another account, I must goto Home » Account Information » List Accounts
    When I should be able to do this from my primary domain / reseller account and select from my "Switch Account" dropdown.

    Is there a security issue with do you think? Does this make sense?

    OOoO, I think I should have named my title "Change Default New Accounts from Root"
