but how to set up the root password????

nothing in the system log and the documentation says nothing:

first it says login over ssh:
>The server will respond with a Message of the Day that contains helpful links and a URL where you can log in to cPanel & WHM.
nope, no message

To log in to WHM, perform the following steps:
  1. In your preferred browser, navigate to the cPanel & WHM login URL. A new interface will appear.
  2. Agree to the software license. A new interface will appear.
  3. Enter the your contact information and nameserver information. The WHM Home interface will appear.

step 1 - the whm login appears and you need a password
