For cPanel & WHM version 66
(Home >> Account Functions >> Password Modification)
This interface allows you to change the passwords for your reseller and cPanel accounts. You can use this feature to set a new password without the original password, which is useful if the user's original password was lost, forgotten, or compromised.
Passwords are irretrievable. If a user loses or forgets a password, you must create a new password.
To change an account’s password, perform the following steps:
- Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.
Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word, and it contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
- Select the account for which you wish to change the password.
Select Synchronize MySQL password if you wish to use the same password for both MySQL® and the cPanel account.
Note:This option is only available if the user has a
.my.cnffile in their home directory.
- Select Enable Digest Authentication to enable Digest Authentication support. This option allows you to access Web Disk through a clear text connection or an unencrypted connection. Users who use Windows Vista®, Windows® 7, and Windows® 8, and who do not have an SSL certificate that a recognized certificate authority signed require this support.
- Click Change Password.
