    Raise Number 1: have Numbers and alpha create a password like this
    eg: 3jj4nn31hn4j1h2341n2knk4mn, ihrjewni5n3k4n32nk6, etc
    make it long......

    Are you logging in with one ID and SU'ing to root? If so, have you changed both passwords? Just a thought.

    Yes. I changed my pass, and attempted to su it did not work, the old pass only, I then temporarily enabled root to try, but the old password still worked. I disabled root again, attempted to change yet again through WHM this time, and now I cannot login any where... I am trying to get support from EV1 now... hopefully they can help me regain control and login.
