    Hi, I just change with the WHM the root password with something like <?=mypassd;?> and I cannot log in anymore !

    Does cpanel ignore some caracters or convert them to another like adding slashes or anything ??

    I don't want to get 2hours of road, physically hack my server to change my password ! I know the one I type is correct, so what the cpanel does with it ?

    Tanks

    I wonder if it didn't change < to &lt; and > to &gt;
    making your password: &lt;?=mypassd;?&gt;

    edit: I can reproduce this, but my suggestion isn't correct. I'm trying to figure out what
    my new root password actually is on this test box now. You should open a ticket with
    cPanel though.

    edit x'2: ah ha, so the suggestion was correct.

    Glad to hear everything worked out :)

    A report about this was file with our developers as the special characters should not be transformed.

    Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
