cPanel WHM password reset
Ok, I needed to restore a VPS onto a different server due to a hardware failure. The new VPS is up and running and I can apache is displaying the cPanel WHM login panel ok. So I know the VPS is fine.
However, my WHM username/password are no longer working.
What options do I have resetting the password for the WHM? I have full access to the shell of the VPS (root access).
Thanks in advance of any help,
login to shell and type passwd That will change the root password and let you login to WHM.
Cool, i'll give it a go. Thanks
/scripts/chpasswd root newpassword
Run the following in order to change the root password
Server with cPanel;
Type the passord inside the double quotes inorder to use non alphabetic character
/scripts/chpasswd root "password"
Server without controlPanels;
Why run cpanel scripts to reset the password? You should be doing it by the way that allows you to change it on any server.
Just use the command passwd.
Also, you sure that the reason why the password is not working is due to a dns not being fully propagated?
