    What are the password requirments when changing a password in cpanel? I know they are somewhat strict, and I know they are alphanumeric, but as a whole, what are they ?

    The cPanel passwords are the same as the unix password guidelines for your system. all cPanel users are the same for the FTP and SSH account and would have to conform to the unix password specifications

    Cannot be based on any dictionary word
    Must be 8 characters or more
    Cannot be the same as the users first/last name
    Must contain at least one uppercase letter, and one number
