    When I try to access cPanel using SSL (on port 2083) and the account password (I have only one account created) I got a warning message saying "Warning! You are logged in with the reseller or root password".
    Root password???? I've just used an account password!!! Any idea for this isssue?

    If this can help... using no SSL (on port 2082) it work fine.

    Thanks

    Is the account password the same as the root password?

    No, it would only say that if the password was the same as your root password or that user has the UID of 0.
