    Hello,

    Im stuck with this problem. I changed the password strength from default value : 0 to 50. However after that setting is changed, i cannot login to whm anymore. Even i reset root passwd to a new passwd.

    Help me!

    Please edit /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file in root SSH for these settings:

    Change the 1 to 0 for PasswordStrength, then restart cPanel:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/cpanel restart

    Hello Tristan,

    I already vi /var/cpanel/cpanel.config but any SecurityPolicy is not there. The cpanel version is 11.26.20-STABLE_49708.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Did you find this setting in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config to solve the issue?

    minpwstrength=50

    I was testing to try to figure out how to do this, but I only have 11.28 systems myself (11.26 systems don't have the security policy settings but they do have password strength). Knowing if that was what you did to fix it (by changing that to 0 and restarting cPanel) would be helpful.

    Thanks :)

    Hello,

    Your first guide is the solution, and i did check on the wrong server before i noticed myself.

    Thanks so much, you are very helpful!
