LINUX, CPANEL & WHM
Posted on 2016-11-03
I'm a systems admin for a small company and we are a Windows shop.
A software developer requested a Linux VM, with CPANEL & WHM.
I have never used CPANEL before.
The request came from high up and I just finish the installation.
I have the root admin access using WHM, and I have created a CPANEL Admin access for the Software Developer.
When I log in to the CPANEL with the Software Developer user I found quite the arrange of options to make changes. I don't really care about the Linux VM itself and it is only running that for him, but ...
I did setup the Linux VM to use my Windows Domain DNS Servers.
And when the CPANEL installation process asked about the domain name I used the same Windows Domain.
Can the Software Developer damage, or change my Windows DNS Servers or my Windows Domain using CPANEL????
Should I change the DNS Servers and Domain in the WHM & CPANEL?
Thanking you in advance,
