    Why would you hire a programmer if it's such an easy task to install? Next time hire someone more trustworthy to do your install, someone with a bit of a reputation.

    Go on, have a guess
    You should be more patient and polite if you would like any help, especially when your questions has nothing to do with cPanel whatsoever. This is not an official support forum.

    To answer your question: you need to reboot the server into single user mode to reset the root password from the console of the server. If you don't have access to the console then you need to ask your datacentre t do that for you.
