    Hi Marshal,

    Have you lost the Reseller whm paasword? If so it can be reset from Root WHM. If you have lost the Root WHM password your host/DC can only reset it.

    If you have lost the root password, the only option is to pay 50$ to your DC.

    You might try typing in your password (if you are cut/pasting) just to be sure it's not an extra space issue or something silly. If it's a matter of you being locked out by a firewall, try logging in from a computer from some other location.

    You lost it, or otherwise did something wrong so get ready to cough up that $50.. I doubt that your assertion of it not being your fault will convince your host to recover it for free..

    Hello,

    Are you sure you are not blocked in firewall too. Are you able to access the sites in the server? If yes, I thinks there is no other way than contacting your DC for resetting the password!
