Hi
Is out of problems set sudo user on wheel group to disable root login? I am asking because directadmin create an admin user with ssh enabled too.

Regards

It's not a problem if you disable it, however, I don't think it's more secure to have a 'wheel' user instead of having "PermitRootLogin without-password" and using keys for authentication.

You are right! thanks
