    Hello @John11887,

    Can you access your server via SSH as root and verify what appears in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log when your attempt to access WHM fails? For example, you'd run the following command, attempt to access WHM, and then check to see which new lines are added to the output:

    Code:
    tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log
    Information on how to access your server via SSH is documented at:

    SSH Access - Version 70 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    Can you post the full output that showed up? Ensure to replace the IP address in the output with an example.

    Thank you.

    Hello @John11887,

    The log output is showing that you are using the wrong password to access WHM as root. Are you using the same root password when accessing the server as root via SSH, or are you accessing SSH with a key?

    Additionally, the output shows you are attempting to login to cPanel (ports 2082 or 2083) with the "root" username in some of the attempts. Ensure to only use the "root" username with port 2087 as part of the Web Host Manager login attempt.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Can you try using a different web browser to see if the issue persists? Also, if you're copying/pasting the password, make sure you're not including an extra space or character.

    Thank you.
