    I am new to cPanel and WHM. I have a server that is only going to be me using it, no one will have access. I have created two cPanel accounts one for each of my domains.

    I need domain abc.com to have root access to make changes to xyz.com; xyz.com is just a shell so that the hosting company I am with can install SSL for each domains.

    If try to write a file or pass over an image to /home/xyz/public_html/ from within the other account I do not have access.

    Option One
    Can I give it access and full control? And if I do will this remain there if I make cPanel changes and upgrades?

    This would be the easiest option; but if I cannot do this can I setup option two?

    Option Two
    Leave the cPanels as they are and create a virtual host include to redirect traffic to a section on the server where I do have access?

    You could add the second domain as an addon domain to the first. This gives you full access to both with one login.

    I had this setup this way and was told by the hosting company an SSL with its own IP can not be installed on an Add-on domain.

    Did they mention that you don't necessarily need a dedicated IP for SSL for both domains?

    No, I am not familiar with this admin. All new to me. I have contacted them to ask. Thanks for the heads up on that.

    Thanks for your help. It got resolved using the method you had described, using the same IP Address. Merci!
