    I don't remember my WHM password but however i am able to login to my root with the root password. Is there any way to get the WHM password ? I couldn't find any way to get it back or reset.

    And i can login to my root with my root password.

    Hi,

    After logged into WHM, navigate to Home » Server Configuration » Change Root Password and change the password

    Hello :)

    You should use "root" as the username with your root password when accessing Web Host Manager. Do you mean you are unable to access WHM as a reseller user? If so, you can update the password for that username after logging in as "root" to WHM and browsing to:

    "WHM Home » Account Functions » Password Modification"

    Thank you.
