    That new user should be a member of wheel (root group) and has root privilege.
    Why do you want to add another root which is increasing security risks?

    I thought I would be able to use less-previliged user tp do every day tasks in WHM.

    I was thinking that maybe the auth box was just .htacces file. Just a thought :S
