    Dear all,

    please point me to a previouw post baout this, because I'm sure it must be there but I cant find it.

    I have 100 client accounts on my server and I have no intention of keeping their passwords, for security as much as administration!

    If I want to log in as a client into their cpanel I do so with their username and my root password, but I am then told by cpanel that I am logged in as root and i dont have full access to all their functions. For instance I cant access phpmyadmin.

    Is there any way around this, to tell cpanel that it is perfectly ok for the root person to have full access to client accounts?

    Many thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    AFAIK, no. You have access to users cPanel accounts, but that access is limited in certain areas as you have found. I'm not aware of a workaround and assume those restrictions are there for good reason.
