Ability to access PHPMyAdmin as a reseller from within WHM
As a Reseller, I want the ability to access PHPMyAdmin from within WHM, so that I can access client's databases without requesting their cPanel password from them.
We have had requests from resellers to grant them some access to their clients' databases. Often times a reseller is a web developer or similar and needs access to manage client databases. It is not ideal to have to chase down the client to request their cPanel password and resetting the password can cause further support issues.
If cPanel could add a phpMyAdmin link in WHM just as it does for the root user that would be helpful. Ideally the reseller's mysql user would be given mysql grants for all of their clients' databases automatically much in the same way that a cPanel account's default mysql user automatically gets a grant for every database the user creates from within cPanel.
Additionally/Alternatively it would be great to see some hooks created that allows us to intercept new database and database user creation/modification and perform custom checks/actions against the account.
This is a feature that has been migrated over from the cPanel Forums. All previous comments and discussions concerning this feature can be located at:
