    When logged into WHM as root how to I allow an account access to something such as phpmyadmin so it will show on the side nav and be accessable when they are logged into their WHM?

    Keep in mind the phpMyAdmin in WHM allows you to access all MySQL databases on the cPanel/WHM server. In contrast, the phpMyAdmin in cPanel restricts the cPanel user to their own databases.

    Since this is functionality only a root-level user would usually have on a server, you will need to grant that reseller root (all) privileges for them to see phpMyAdmin. This is generally not recommended if this is a shared/reseller hosting customer. However, it is common to assign such privileges to members of your staff, such as your technical and administration personnel.
