    Ideally, root user should not have SSH access, and non-root should be restricted to just a few (using AllowGroups directive in sshd_config, for example).

    Non-root can only have 'full access' via sudo.

    To do that, can't you just do this?

    Code:
    Goto Account Functions =>> Manage Shell Access
    Disable Shell Access for all users (except yourself)
    Where "you" are another user (not root).

    What GUI are you talking about?
    Myself, I use plain command-line to control everything, to me it's quicker and simpler.

    SSH restrictions will all eventually be reflected in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and hosts.allow (if TCP wrappers are installed).

    Thanks.

    Yep! How I do it is I have a normal user from which I sudo to root, and I disable remote root login.
    If I need more people to have root access, I give them normal users that can change through sudo to root, and that way I can see who became root and when.

    Hope it makes sense, just woke up

    Ah, I'm a bit new to this. I was referring to what OP said.

    Actually, I have another question. Do these security practices work on Kloxo as well?

    I will be using Kloxo instead of cPanel and I noticed that Kloxo comes with LXGuard, which blocks a user's IP after specified number of unsuccessful attempts. Should I still do the section you mentioned about "Toot breach DETECTOR and EMAIL WARNING"?

    Great tutorial. Some of the input from the users are also essential! Maybe someone could re-create this, but updated with extra protection.

    WHMCS upgrade cart not showing

    I just upgraded to the newest WHMCS and my cart isn't loading, even people who click a link for a product get taken to a blank card, it did show two errors which were fixed by turning safemode off and the ioncube loader, any suggestions?

    Revert back to the older version for the time being until bugs get fixed.

    Very nice tutorial and very easy to understand but I would also include a firewall like (CFS).

    Thanks!

    @Bluz, Regarding your WHMCS issue I have experiencing this in the past and it for me to fix this I had to go back to the old version of WHMCS before the update.


    Hope that helps good luck!
