    hello. i have recently took delivery with
    Code:
    WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.1-S14304
    installed. Whilst i have managed to link everything together, i am having trouble logging into cpanel as root. i have tried through whm by clicking on the account icon and it puts me in cpanel, but i cannot get access to any files below the domain. i need access to these files and i thought that clicking file manager as root would allow me to access. what is the correct way to access my server files using cpanel or whm? many thanks.
