    hi,

    Whenever i goto change password icon in the cpanel and try to change the password am getting this error

    Your password could not be changed because the new password is it is based on a (reversed) dictionary word, please try again!

    Am afraid actually what this mean? Ofcourse am giving a simple password with all letters only.

    For security purposes, CPanel won't allow a simple password like: pass123

    You should use numbers, upper/lower case letters and characaters (!@$%)

    If you absolutely must have your simple password, you can reset it in WHM Password modification as that will accept anything, but it isn't the best idea.
