    Hi guys,

    Just installed CPanel today, set it all up - logged into WHM as root fine - but couldnt log into Cpanel as root - using definate root password.

    Whenever I try login - the login prompt just comes straight back up (after three attempts - ACCESS DENIED page)

    Created an account in WHM - logged into that account through same login prompt fine - just looks like i have problems while trying to login as root.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Cpanel is not meant for root only for accounts created in WHM.

    No one can login in as root id.

    For clarification...you can log into other cpanel accounts (clients or your own) by using that accounts username and your root password. Not always a good idea to go into users Cpanels but sometimes it is necessary.
