    Pretty much as subject.
    cp4 installed ok but has made changes to ssh and now i can't remotly admin via ssh since its killed su.

    I can drive over to the server and use the keyboard but its 80 miles roundtrip and a pain.

    Do any of the new users it adds have high enough rights to login then su to root?

    if you are using SSH you dont need to login with one userid and then su to root

    you can directly use root as a username if you are using SSH Client.

    just user root as a username and the password for the root.

    have a nice time
    best regards,

    Hi

    We have access! well root is up.
    An admin was at the datacenter on another call so he used console to login and disable cpanel.

    FTP was up but no cpanel on port 2086 died following reboot.
    Thanks

    now to restore to old settings. :)
