Hello

I hardened the SSH by disallow direct root access. To access root, I need to login with normal user account first then use command "su -" to login as root.

However, after install cPanel, when I sent 'su -' command with normal user, it gives me "-bash: /bin/su: Permission denied"

It seems cPanel made some changes of permission to normal user. Now I can't find a way to login as root.

What can I do?

Thanks for any helps!

You probably didn't add the user to the wheel group ?
This can be done from WHM >> Security Center >> Manage Wheel Group Users
