    Hello,

    Is it possible to create a limited user access to only restore account via shell?

    Only getting backups from remote and restore them within /home, I personally cannot trust anyone with root access to manage a production node/server. I am afraid of staff abusing their power on the servers intentionally of accidentally. Any ideas?

    Thank you

    Only root have access to restore the complete cPanel account from shell. If you don't want to provide root access to your staff, then unfortunately you will have to do it.

    BTW, if you don't trust anyone with root access, people/staff won't get anything to learn from your project and they will be leaving you soon. So it's better to give root access to a couple of experienced staff members and monitor them on daily basis.
