    Hello :)

    Yes, it's possible the "root" user was locked out by cPHulk brute force detection. It's a good idea to browse to:

    "WHM >> Security Center >> cPHulk Brute Force Protection"

    Add your IP address to the "White List (Trusted IP List)" to ensure it's not blocked in the future.

    Thank you.
