    If a user forgets the password reset it for them.

    cPanel/WHM users are created as standard Unix users. Currently, there is no way to retrieve a user's password. If they have forgotten their password, you will need to change their password for them. You can do this in WHM -> Account Functions -> Password Modification.

    Hi David,
    Thanks for your reply. But there isn't user in the domain list which i want to change password. For this reason i think that cpanel retrieve users list from a different location not directly from linux? Am i right?
    Thanks again

    Is there a domain associated with that user account or is this a unix user you created outside of the cPanel/WHM environment?
