Change root Password in WHM

How do I change my servers root password?

To change the root password for your server in WHM you first need to log in to WHM

Next go to the "Server Configuration" section as show below and click "Change Root Password"

Click change root password


You will then be able to enter a new root password in the "New Password" box and also confirm it in the "Confirm New Password" box.

Please ensure it is of a "Very Strong" strength for security and then click "Change Password" as indicated below.

***Make sure you know exactly what you are changing your password to as this password is for the main account on your server!


Enter password


Once you have done that your servers root password is changed, please wait for confirmation on the screen before navigating elsewhere or closing the window.
