Default Multiple Admin Users

Is it possible to have multiple admin users for ISPConfig. Resellers don't quite work how I want them to. I want them to be able to access all the features the 'admin' user can, but with their own login/password.

No, you can only have one admin user in ISPConfig. It's the same as in Linux: you only have one root user.

Actually in linux you CAN have several root users with different names.
Just change your users /etc/passwd entry..

lets say you got

change it to

Secret hidden root-user! (of course any admin with enough knowledge should spot these kind of users if they arent his...)
