    I make accounts from root WHM. When I log into some of them (www.domain.com:2082) as client it gives me message that I am logged in as root/reseller. Its just a few of them. When I am logged in as root I cant install any scripts. How can I make those accounts the same os others?

    p.s. I didnt give them reseler powers at WHM.

    Thanks

    And remember all your security is absolutely entirely useless if anyone guesses your root password, so make sure your root password is suitably obscure - not an english word, and not guessable. Otherwise you might as well post your root password on your main website, give up, and go home ;)
