At random times, CPanel doesn't recognize passwords. Mainly on the WHM side. I can use the password to SSH in, yet if I use the same password on CPanel it tells me invalid login. Anyone else get this on RedHat?

Could be related to cPHulk Brute force detection system if its enabled. Is it enabled?

Cheers!!!

Yup, that was blocking my logins. Disabled through ssh, and now I can get in again. Thanks for the idea.

No problem. Glad I could help.

No need to disable cPHulk. You can white-list your ip address in cPHulk.

Cheers!!!

check if this happens on any cron run, specially after WHMCS cron job run.

Just whitelist your main server IP in cPHulk, it will be fixed and then you can enable cPHulk
