    Does any body know a way to enter WHM without the user root, cause i have a suppport team and i dont want to give them root password , and at the same time i want them to do some support tasks in WHM.

    I am sure there is a way because resellers already log into whm without root password

    I want them to be able to manage all the accounts on the server , and i doubt they will be able to do that with a reseller account ...

    Use the ACLS in whm, give them the "All Features" ACL and they will get all the options root does in whm, however they do not get 'root' ssh.

    Temporarly change the root password, give them access, when they're done, change the root password again.

    Its usually advised to change your root password every month or so just in case.
