    I have a hosting account that was gave to me in exchange for a service. I have my password for Cpanel but i don't have my password for WHM. I would just ask the person who gave me the server but he is unable to be contacted. Now my question is, is there anyway to find my password so that i can log into WHM? Is there anyway to have someone help me find the password since i have no other way to find out.

    Maybe to clarify, did you get an entire server or were you just given a hosting account? if only a hosting account you would not have whm access nor require it. If though it is an entire server or reseller account you were given than unfortunatly only the person responsible for your account can help with this matter as no-one can help find a password for you. Sorry. :(

    None, unless you had ownership of the server with root access.

    Maybe if your a reseller it might be the same but generally no it is not and it never should be.

    well, you shouldn't have to remember the old password... you changed it remember? You just need to remember the new password.

    If you can't remember the new one you set, then you'll have to contact your host to have them reset your password, as they can't be recovered. If it was an email account, you might be able to change the password from the main page after you login to webmail.
