    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!
