If you are the proprietor of a VPS or Dedicated server account, you possess the capability to generate and administer various cPanel accounts. These accounts could belong to you or your clients who have their own cPanels on your server. Occasionally, a user may forget their cPanel password, and they might approach you for assistance to reset it. Fortunately, resetting a cPanel password is a simple process that can be carried out through the WHM, and we will illustrate the steps below.
It’s worth noting that creating unlimited cPanels is no longer an option. For further details and pricing information, we recommend referring to our article on cPanel Pricing Changes. Additionally, if you’re curious about the reasons behind this change, please check out our FAQ on cPanel Pricing Changes.
In this article, you will learn how to reset a cPanel password in WHM.
Resetting a cPanel password
To reset a cPanel password through WHM, please follow these steps:
- Log in to your WHM interface.
- In the left-hand menu, select “Account Functions.”
- Choose the “Password Modification” tool, which can be accessed from either the left menu or the main panel.
- Highlight the account for which you wish to change the password from the list.
- In the “Password” field, enter the new password. Alternatively, you can use the “Password Generator” button to have WHM create a random password for you. Remember to write down the new password, as it will not be visible after leaving this page.
- Click the “Change Password” button to save the new password.
Once the cPanel password has been successfully changed through WHM, the cPanel user can utilize the new password to access their account. Please note that WHM does not send automatic notifications to inform anyone of the password change. Therefore, if the cPanel manager is someone other than yourself, you will need to inform them of the new password.
