    I checked out Password Strength configuration however I can't seem to find the option to set minimum password length.

    Right now the default length is just 5, I want to set it to something longer, is it possible to set this?

    Hello :)

    It's not possible to set the minimum password length from within Web Host Manager. However, you can increase the password strength requirement via:

    "WHM >> Security Center >> Password Strength Configuration"

    Modifying the minimum length itself involves editing system files such as:

    /etc/pam.d/system-auth

    Thank you.
