    I haven't seen a thread that clearly addresses this topic yet. How do you reset the root whm password? I don't have shell access, but I do have access to the hyper-v server cpanel is hosted on.

    Are there step-by-step instructions that explain this? A former employee changed the root password, and now I'm looking to recover access to whm.

    Thank you!

    Hello :)

    You may want to check with the support team for the virtualization software you are using to verify how to change the root password of an individual VPS.

    Thank you.
