    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.

    Here's a list of log files the folks over A Small Orange put together for their VPS customers. It's a fairly exhaustive list of the log files generated on a cPanel/WHM system

    Apache
    /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log
    /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
    /usr/local/apache/domlogs/example.com

    MySQL
    /var/lib/mysql/hostname.err

    Exim
    /var/log/exim_mainlog
    /var/log/exim_paniclog
    /var/log/exim_rejectlog

    Courier-IMAP
    /var/log/maillog

    cPanel
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log

    Pure-FTP
    /var/log/messages
    /var/log/xferlog (symlinked to /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ftpxferlog)

    System (cron, syslog, named, etc)
    /var/log/messages
    /var/log/boot.log
    /var/log/cron
    /var/log/dmesg

    Security (ssh, ModSecurity, etc)
