Hi there guys,

I found how to change the root pw, but I'm having problems finding out how to change the wheel group user's password.

I found the wheel group management panel, but I can only add & remove there. How do I change the pw?

thanks,
json

Go on, have a guess
If it's a non-cPanel account and you don't know the existing user account password, then you can do it in shell from root using:

passwd username

Then follow the prompts. If you do know the user account password, then just login over SSH and just use:

passwd
