We have had the unfortunate experience of having a rogue webmaster that hijacked our site by changing the Cpanel Password and login. Is there a way we or the host can reset it to the original login information and where can I find details?

Thank you.

the password file is stored /etc/password and /etc/shadow.. any how I would not recommend you to reset it to original as the password might have been hijacked by your webmaster ...
