    Apparently, if you go to WHM and put in any username and then the root password, you still get logged in as root with root privelages...

    Does cpanel say you are logged in using the root or reseller password?

    After further testing, if a reseller has the same password as root and they put in any other username besides there assigned username, whm will log them in as root.

    further more, if the reseller puts in his username and has the same password as root, he will be loggin as root.

    Sounds like a good reason to use a complex root password and not share it ;)
