    Hey, I recently bought a Dedicated Server and installed cPanel on it. I can log on WHM and all with the root information but not cPanel. I want to make a root account for cPanel, how can I go about doing this? Thanks.

    Should I just make it a reseller account?

    You can, it depends on your needs. Personally I always create the first account for myself and make it a Reseller, and then give that Reseller proper access via Reseller Center. Rarely do I ever login to WHM via root, I use the Reseller account instead for most everything,

    If you want someone (your client)to resell your own packages you can add reseller account otherwise normal account will do.
