you can add one user (your name?) in the epanel. Give it a password as usual. Then get out of epanel once it tells you it has created the user.

Then go to the menu System, User Account Admin, there you must login as root (eliveuser perhaps) there you can change your user privileges, first item in a list is> administer the system, click it, you are now administrator. There are other activities you can enable/unable.

good luck

It's a very BAD idea ! The security of your system is compromised if you use the root user permanently in a Linux system !
