    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

    Are you logged into WebHost Manager as root user or a Reseller?

    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!
