    When I log into the server via SSH I have to log in first as one of the wheel-group members which was setup i'm assuming when we created the server, then do su- and login as root.

    1. How do I change that account's password.
    2. How do I make a new account with no hosting that I can replace that current account login with.

    So for example... If I'm logging in right now with
    jimmy / password
    THEN su -
    THEN root / rootpwd

    How do I change that password for user jimmy.

    and Second... How do i make a new account to be used in the wheel group and delete jimmy from the wheel group.

    The only thing I can find in WHM is "Manage Wheel Group Users" and there is the "add a user" and "remove a user", nothing about creating or modifying a user.

    Thanks....
