Hello,
I just installed cPanel on my server and I want to know what is the default username / password for login to cPanel and WHM.
I have tried in WHM root and nothing, root and root, root and password, root and my ssh password. But nothing..

Can you help me?
Thanks

Hi @PotTime

The WHM login will be the same as your root SSH login root/rootpass - There is no "default" cPanel login, the user and password are created when you create an account.

What URL are you accessing to login to the server? When accessing WHM I usually use the IP address in cases like this:

https://<ipaddresshere>:2087

If you don't know your root password you will need to contact your provider or datacenter for further assistance.

Thanks!
