    I am looking for future/current possibilities to have a few user accessing the same cPanel account (not reseller) with different priviledge such as eg:

    User A can only manipulate/add/remove email.
    User B having total access.
    User C only can view web statistic, etc.

    Currently, they have features manager which only apply to a single account & single user per cPanel account.

    Hope to hear good news! :rolleyes:

    Go to feature manager and define new feature list(un check the unwanted features) with desired privileges and create packages with those fetures.

    No I think msiaforum wants it so that multiple user accounts can be created for the SAME cpanel hosting account.

    This is something which my customers have requested a few times, but I am unable to offer them.

    For example:

    - You host "Company A" whom get a webdesign company in to do there website
    - The webdesign company need access to mysql through the control panel, maybe a few other things like stats
    - Company A does not want to give out its main cpanel user account details.

    IMHO this would be a great feature. But would require ACL's (Access Control Lists), so maybe a pain to implement and maintain.

    Mysql access hosts can be created for individuals without giving cpanel access.
    Stats can also be made externally accessible and as far as files, specific directories can also be made accessible for individual user names and passwords via http and assigned to ftp permissions as well.

    All those things do not need full cpanel access.

    Yep true. Nevertheless I think the "ease of use" from allowing multiple user accounts would benefit many companies/users.

    My idea agreed with summy.
    I'm thinking of having a different user managing the email account without giving the full cPanel access.

    I was merely stating these things can be done fairly easily. Although its the limitations of linux and security issues rise of course by multiplying login information, so I doubt this will be seen in cpanel any time soon.

    how will this be possible though? Cause then you'll need to setup roles, somehow, in oder to manage who can access what?
