    Hello,

    I need to give access to some people to specific functionality of cPanel, let's say only access Logaholic, phpMyAdmin, Email Accounts, or Auto-Replies for a specific cPanel account; does this functionality exist?


    Thanks

    Hello :)

    You can assign a specific feature list to the package assigned to their account. Feature lists are created via:

    "WHM Home » Packages » Feature Manager"

    Thank you.

    I assume then that I need to create sub-domains to create these sub-accounts with the limited features.

    You should not need subdomains to do this.

    Any cPanel account can be assigned a "package" and you use Feature Manager to decide what packages have what features available.

    I understand, but I need multiples access levels under the same website account.

    I.e.
    1. I need the main account to have full access
    2. I need another user to access to stats only
    3. I need a 3rd user to access and be able to access phpMyAdmin only

    All these above are related to the same website (account), e.x. site1.com

    Not to be a moaning git or anything ;) but that feature request has been open for a "while" now without any staff response, and the forum thread linked within it was opened in 2008. Back in 2010, it had staff engagement and got to the point where a request was submitted to developers, since then we've all heard very little.

    I know this request runs deep from a technical architecture standpoint, but not having heard anything from staff for years and with the pluggable auth framework (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHS3wjayHwE) that was under development having been dropped, everyone is a bit confused. Could a statement please be made on the feature request as to your current thinking on the matter?

    Done; I was scratching my head trying to find this without luck, but, it doesn't exist.

    Thanks
