    Is there a way to make multiple users with different privileges?

    I run a hosting site with many clients, but my support staff cannot always access a clients cPanel due to various reasons. I can access anybodies acct with my root access.
    I want to know the following:
    1) Can I add more users with various privileges?
    Such as view, edit, delete client cPanels/files but not have any access
    to the OS (CentOS) or anything else.
    2) In not, can I create a cPanel acct with these privileges?

    The short answer is no, there can only be one root user.

    You could create a reseller account though, and then select the options you'd like to give this reseller via the Reseller Center in your WHM.

    This reseller will have to own the accounts you want him to be able to edit.

    Could I make like a semi admin account? So they could access the stuff but not full root?

    As mentioned, if you created a reseller account and gave that reseller account ownership of the accounts. You can restrict a resellers access in WHM via the Reseller Center in WHM.

    Thank you Infopro. I saw that but it's a little more leeway for them for me to be comfortable with at this time
