    Anyone? I only ask because every time my partner reboots the server via the WHM control panel. I have to call our datacenter to get the server backup. Sometimes it stays down for hours until I get online. My datacenter keeps saying the error has to do with config server & firewall. I really don't want to remove this firewall, I love what it offers. I just want to prevent my partner from constantly rebooting the darn server every other week so i don't have to bug my datacenter everytime.

    I have told him numerous times. This is the 4th time now and I'm just fed up. So I want to disable the reboot feature so I don't have to worry about it anymore

    If your partner is like that, they may be doing other silly things too. Could you give them reseller access instead and not let them have root? That might help reduce the opportunities.

    I agree with that. If your partner is like that , are you sleeping at night knowing he has root?

    Yea i know, I do keep a close eye on everything.

    Believe me, I have missed school, been late for work, and even lost time that could be spent with family fixing his mistakes in the past.

    But he is paying half the server bill and he doesn't know jack about SSH so the damage he can do is very limited. If I gave him a reseller account I fear he wouldn’t help with the bill and I cannot afford the whole server by myself.

    Edit /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/themes/x/command
    and remove this part :

    Your partner would still be able to access it through the direct URL but hopefully he didn't bookmark it ;)
