Periodically for some reason I am getting access denied when I try to SSH as root and I need to go into WHM to reset the root password to re-open access. How do I prevent this from happening?

Hi,

Try the below things...
  • Whitelist your IP address in the cphulk..
  • Try using a SSH key authentication..
  • Check the /var/log/secure for evidence of root login attempted..
