I am was looking how to create multiple admin accounts for WHM.

The only thing which might work is to use useradd and then provide level 0 in passwd.

But I want to be able to see a log per admin account.

So is it possible to create mutiple admin accounts within WHM.

And is it's possible to see a log?

Setting up multiple admin accounts in WHM is easy, simply create a reseller user then grant them root access privileges via the Reseller Center (or privileges screen when you grant them reseller access).

Regarding logs, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a log to log activity in WHM. Off-hand I don't recall what that log would be.

And log activity of the customers Cpanel to have some prove if customers blame you for mailfunctions. (and doesn't want to pay for you assistance)
