How to change your WHM password

  • This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to WebHost Manager.
  • Now let’s learn how to change our WHM admin password.
  • Click the Account Functions link.
  • Then click Password Modification.
  • Remember that the WHM password is the same as the cPanel password for your main account.
  • In this tutorial, our main account is demoreseller.com so let’s go ahead and change its password.
  • Enter and confirm a new password…
  • … then click Change Password.
  • That’s it! We’ve successfully changed our main password that’s used to login to WHM and cPanel for demoreseller.com.
  • Now let’s go try and do something else in WHM.
  • Click List Accounts.
  • Since we’ve just changed the WHM password, we are required to login again before being able to do anything else in WHM.
  • Login with your new password.
  • We are now logged back in to WHM.
  • This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to change your WHM password. Remember to keep your password in a safe place. Although you can change the password for any account in WHM, you cannot retrieve a lost password.
