    Hi Cpanellers!

    I'm have root ssh access, and can get into my machine. The issue I'm facing is when I try to login as root into WHM over 2087, I get an htaccess popup that I can't get by.

    I've tried changin the root passwd, and also using the command line passwrd tool to change my login successfully, but I still can't get past the htaccess.

    I just want to login to run some security updates.

    How can I disable to .htaccess prompt for port 2087 from the command line? Or is there a tool to update the login/password for this prompt?

    /etc/redhat-release:CentOS release 6.9 (Final)
    /usr/local/cpanel/version:11.68.0.19
    /var/cpanel/envtype:kvm
    CPANEL=release

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hello,

    You can check to see why access to WHM is denied by running the following command before attempting the login attempt:

    Code:
    tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log
    Do you see any specific entries explaining why the login fails (e.g. cPHulk Brute Force Detection)?

    Thank you.
