    Hello,

    It's not possible to login through cPanel as the root user. Instead, you should login as the account username. The account username is defined when creating the account in Web Host Manager. Documentation on creating an account in Web Host Manager is available at:

    Create a New Account - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
