    Hello,

    Today my root password was not working (it was saved in password manager). So i tried to reset it through SolusVM CP and reset it. But SSH and WHM doesn't recognize my password as it says "Login incorrect". What happened?

    my servers are on CentOS 6.5 and WHM/cPanel.
    Thanks

    You'll need to contact your Hosting Provider about this, no one here can help with your passwords, sorry.

    Probably a cPhulk lockout.

    make sure no extra spaces are added to the password string when you enter. The other possibility is cpHulk as mentioned by quizknows . If nothing works contact your host and get it reset
