    [quote:7e3a3a7a75]Wheel su Security
    Users must be in the wheel group to use the su command. You can now add
    and remove users from the wheel group in WHM.
    (4.4.0 build 25 or later only)[/quote:7e3a3a7a75]
    How do I add a user to the wheel group in WHM?
    I can\'t find any link. :mad:

    Thanks

    First update WHM and then select the last command (Add/Remove Users from the Wheel Group (allow su)) from the \"Server Setup\" menu.

    Or edit the /etc/group file, find the line that begins with wheel::
    And add the user in question to the end of said line.

    Something weird happened to me. I deleted an account and next thing I know, I get Permission Denied when trying to su in SSH.
    Somehow my admin account lost permissions to execute it :/
    Readded it through WHM and it worked.

    Made me cack myself thinking it was a security violation! :D
