    Add extra account for management whm
    Hi Guys,

    I have had issues recently with brute force attacks on people trying to get access to the root username, and I get locked out of root from the server we have cPanel / WHM installed

    I am following this tutorial

    https://www.mammoth.net.au/hc/en-us/...ice-management

    All going good except for the when logging into SSH to give the user sudo access (root access) the command doesn't work under centOS its for Ubuntu.

    Can anyone tell me what the same command is but for centOS

    That command is for CentOS, you cannot install cPanel / WHM under Ubuntu. I would recommend using CSF firewall and have that handle the blocking of brute force attempts. If you only login via a single IP, you could lock down the WHM & SSH ports in CSF.
