yea theres the /var/log files i don't know if it says username, but the problem with that is we can't get full ssh to those "root" accounts. we could get normal SSH but not full
plus we have some plugin's that only root can access and we need us all to be able to access it
sudo su is how we grant root access to staff members as needed. As illustrated in the short video I created for you - if you give the user SSH access (regular SSH, not jailed) and then add them to the sudoers file they will be able to sudo su to root.
If you know what you are doing you can only allow certain commands and other such limitations but the staff with us that have the access are trusted with the access they are given. What it comes down to is that if you can't trust your staff then you better be willing to do it all yourself.
Do this in /etc/sudoers
## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
usernamehere ALL=(ALL) ALL
You will see the root ALL=(ALL) ALL in there already, just add a new line that is the same but change root to the actual username.
Log into SSH with that username and then type "sudo su" and hit enter - then type that user's password again (not the root password) and you will be escalated to root.
As for WHM plugins that only root can access - I don't know a way around that other than giving your staff the root password to the server.
