    I have installed the latest version of cpanel today.

    Iv have come to login on port 2082 and it will not accept my root password, port 2087 is closed.

    I can login to port 2082 with one of my normal user accounts but i get the message Unknown License File Version I have registered my ip and it has been accepted altough i get the same message

    So i have logged into my server through ssh and tried to SU to root and it seems Cpanel taken over:

    -bash: /bin/su: Permission denied

    Please help as all my websites are currently offline (Showing Cpanel - There is no website configured at this address.) and I cannot even login as root to put things right.

    You really shouldn't install cPanel on anything other than a machine with a fresh OS install and no critical data as mentioned in the WHM installation docs.

    Your best bet would be to contact cPanel support and have them look into things - if this was not a clean OS install there could be any manner of possible causes.
