    Hello all,

    I have just inherited a web client. They have a VPS just for one website...the VPS is running Centos 5.11 WHM 11.46.

    I cannot gain SSH access using root to run a yum update. In fact, no SSH access at all. The OS and cPanel are out of date so really need to be updated.

    I do have web root access to WHM.

    Can anyone steer me in the right direction so I can enable root SSH?

    Thanks
