    If you are a reseller, simply login to the cPanel account (all WHM Reseller accounts are also cPanel accounts) and change your password there.

    If you are root, simply go to WHM -> Server Configuration -> Change Root Password

    Change Root Password - Does NOT change

    I have a VPS and when I try to change my WHM Root Password, I get

    BUT the password does NOT change.

    EXAMPLE: This happens when I try to change the password FROM abc123 TO abc123abc123.
    The new password is 2 times the old one.
    BUT, I am still able to log in with just abc123 despite a successful message.

    What could be the reason?

    Is this a BUG which is making the WHM think that abc123 = abc123abc123?

    The password does change if I use a new password like, xyz123xyz123. With this new password, if I just try xyz123, it does NOT work, but xyz123xyz123 works.
    This means WHM knows xyz123 != xyz123xyz123

    Cheers
