    Hi,

    I currently have 4 staff working in house for me and as i had previously always worked on my own had always just used root to create all accounts and administer the server.

    I have been advised that it is a bit of a risk using root all the time and all my staff having the root password etc.

    I am a web designer and have no knowledge of Linux etc, I am using:

    WHM 11.23.0 cPanel 11.23.3-C25133
    FEDORA 4 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    What is the best steps to secure my server whilst still giving staff access for what they need?

    Regards

    rob

    One option would be to create additional wheel users in WHM.
