    I recently reload the operating system on my server, and have replaced accounts.
    Everything is fine except WHM, It simply doesnt accept any passwords

    I can login to ssh, just not whm

    Are the WHM passwords stored in a different place/ how can I find out why i cannot login ?

    Go on, have a guess
    Are you logging in as root into WHM as you should be? cPanel simply autheticates the usernames against /etc/passwd so if you can SSH in with root, you ought to be able to login to WHM as root. Do you actually get the login box come up when trying to login to WHM or does it just not display the login box?
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
