Hello,

I can able to access the WHM Root with a valid password and it works but the same password not working with Root ssh

Issue has been sorted by doing the Login using SSH Keys

Imunify360 blocked the connections because to RBL Blacklist.So By doing the Whitelist on Immunify it was working

For future readers, root does not need to be in the wheel group, in fact I've never seen root in wheel group.
