    One one of my servers this morning, I cannot log into root WHM. I keep getting "Login Attempt Failed!"

    I *KNOW* the password, but just to be sure I didn't somehow change it, I logged in to SSH as root
    (key authentication) and forced a password change.

    I can also log in SSH using the user ADMIN, and password. Just not to WHM.

    Any ideas why whm would not be allowing me in?

    Are you getting any brute-force message on your end?.. check out your cphulkd log in cPanel log directory :)

    Please ignore. This ended up being something really stupid on my own part.
