    cphulk has blocked access, I have tried from several IPs, WHM, and none will let me in.

    I guess it shut down root, the only way I can get in.

    I'm on hour two of this nightmare. I'm so upset I forgot to disable it when setting this server up.

    Anyways, how do I get back in, if root is shut down by cphulk?

    I tried this:

    csf -f

    and

    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd

    It's o.k to just answer and not send me to abstract unhelpful man pages.

    I just need to get into the server that CPhulk has blocked me out of.

    To confirm, do you have shell access to the system? Your original post suggested that shell access was not permitted.

    Thank you.

    Yes, I'm at the data center now with console access.

    Sorry I meant remote shell.

    And to be concise, it lets me get to the log in prompt but even with the right password it says the password is wrong.

    We have done a kernel root password change to make sure the password is correct.

    We got it, we flushed mysql and that seemed to let us into the WHM where I can disable it.

    Thanks,

    Honestly I would flush the DB again and completely disable cPhulk. Use CSF since that will not lock out root. I also encourage you to vote for the feature above to exclude root from cphulk lockout as it is very easy to create a DoS condition otherwise.
