    Dear arkain,

    You can change a normal user to a superuser(equal to root) by changing his UID and GID to 0(root UID and GID) at /etc/passwd file.

    You can use the visudo command to create a superuser with out changing UID and GID of that user. It will give permission to normal user as superuser. The following link will help you in this:

    In WHM, click on Manage Wheel Group Users and then add them to the wheel group.

    They will then be able to issue the su - command, and they then enter the root password and they will be on as a superuser.

    I am pretty sure that I understand this process properly.
