    Hi,

    I have notice that if I use the root password and a username on the system I can access the account for that username is this right ?

    Regards,

    Regards,
    Garry[/quote:cc568419aa]Although that is how WHM/Cpanel works, it is important to remember that if you are accessing Cpanel using this method [b:cc568419aa]your IP address is going to show[/b:cc568419aa] where it says &Last login& and may have your Client thinking &they have& been hacked. So you will need to know how to handle that situation. I inform my Clients of this in the &Welcome& eMail so they know from the start.

    WHM doesn't show &Last login& so need to worry there.
