For example, "Tweak Settings" and "Packages." I have attached an image of what my WHM home screen looks like.

I have root ssh access, and can edit /var/cpanel/cpanel.config, but it would be nice to be able to manage those options from the GUI, especially as most documentation includes only GUI-based instructions.

My server versions:
/etc/redhat-release:CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)
/usr/local/cpanel/version:11.68.0.28
/var/cpanel/envtype:virtuozzo
CPANEL=release

Oh boy, I did not even realize there was a root/<root_ssh_password> account for WHM (I recently inherited this system and am not super familiar with cPanel/WHM).

It looks like I was logging in as the user for a specific domain (conveniently named <domain>admin), explaining why I did not have a lot of options.

As a follow-up, is this best practices? I was intending to replace the ssh passwords with key-based authentication. Would that break root WHM access?

Anyway, thanks for leading me in the right direction!
