    I recently adjusted our server's Password Strength Configuration (under WHM > Security Center). After that, I had a report of a user that, when logging into cPanel, received the message:

    If I changed the Password Strength Configuration back to the way it was, the problem went away.

    In looking at the cPanel error log (at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log) the following was being logged:

    Based on the error, cPanel was restarted with /etc/init.d/cpanel restart and now the problem has gone away.

    I hope this helps someone out there in the future. Thanks to cPanel Technical Analyst Jeff Peterson for the assist on this one!
