Hello all,

When i change the "root" password in cpanel, it will also change the root pass of server.

I want to give full access of whm/cpanel control panel to staff, while keeping the "root" access of server myself.

Any ways to do that.

Thanks,
foka

1) setup a user for yourself
2) add this user in 'Manage wheel group' to wheel group.
3) disable direct root login in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Now only users in the wheel group can login to root, first logging in to their user account and then su to root.


You could also setup a reseller account with all privileges just for staff.

That, and you could always add a reseller account to the system that is/has root (all) privileges, etc.
