    I have been entering my cpanel server password in another cpanel server installation.

    Does cpanel log that wrong access anywhere? or is better to change my cpanel server password for security?:confused:

    Thanks, Ivan

    If you mean that you have 2 separate cPanel accounts and they both use the same password, I don't think that's a problem. Just make sure it's a very hard to guess password of course. Unclear on what you mean by wrong access, do you mean failed logins?

    oh yes , i mean failed logins.

    I could not get into my cpanel server installation because i was trying to log into another unkown cpanel.

    can the other unknow cpanel user access my username and password that i entered in his site and access my cpanel installation?

    cPanel does not store incorrect passwords. You should change your password if it makes you more comfortable, but cPanel does not archive failed passwords anywhere. It makes note that a failed log-in happened, but does not record the actual password that was tried.
