This tutorial assumes you are already logged into WHM.

You may need to change an account password if the customer LOSES their password or for SECURITY reasons, but remember you can always tell a customer that they can CHANGE THEIR OWN password from their cPanel so you really should only need to use the WHM password modification if it’s been FORGOTTEN and the customer cannot log in to cPanel.


Now select the account that needs the password changed.

Enter a NEW PASSWORD for the selected account in the provided box.

Remember that account passwords must be between SIX AND EIGHT CHARACTERS LONG, and must START WITH A LOWER CASE LETTER and should contain a combination of both letters and numbers.

Click the CHANGE button.

That’s it! The password has been changed.

You now know how to change the password of any account in your WHM.
