For cPanel & WHM version 68

(WHM >> Home  >> Server Configuration >> Change Root Password)

Overview

This interface allows you to change the root user's password. The system does not require the old password.


Important:

Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word, and it contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

How to change your root password

To change the root user's password, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.

    Notes:

    • The system evaluates the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points. 0 indicates a weak password, while 100 indicates a very secure password.
    • Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strength meter indicates that the password is equal to or greater than the required password strength.
    • Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read our Password & Security documentation.


  2. Click Change Password.
