    Well it seems as if the reset password function does not work, so how does one go about resetting the password for cpanel if it is lost?

    The password can be changed in WHM.

    If you are an end user (no WHM) contact your provider to get it changed.

    Dude, how am I supposed to login to WHM if I dont know the password? This is the question!! I dont want to change the password, I need to get the password to MY server (no I am not an end user) as I had it stored as a cookie but recently deleted them and now have forgotten the password! The password retrieval process does not work either...It says it sends a confirmation link to the base email, which it does not.

    Anyone who actually read my post care to fill me in on how to get the password?

    Hi Daemon1,

    Please try to reset the password from shell, if the option doesn't works. It is not possible to retrieve the password if you lost it, but we can reset the password from shell.

    Regards,:)
