    Default How to reset WHM root password

    Hi All,

    I'm a beginniner still learning things...

    Is the root account for WHM the same as the root account I use to shell in with using SSH with Putty?

    When I login to WHM using root as the user all I see is a blank white screen. I reset my root password using the 'passwd' command, thinking that perhaps I had the wrong WHM password and my IP is now firewalled or something.

    If WHM root password is different, how can I reset it through shell?

    thank you.

    Yes, if the username you used to login to WHM was root.
