    Hi,

    I have a server with Solusvm on and need to change root password, can this be done from command line ?

    Or will i need to KVM into the system to change it.

    Hello :)

    You can also change the root password via:

    "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Change Root Password"

    Thank you.
