There are two ways to Change cPanel Root Password: via the command line interface or from the WHM cPanel itself.
Also, the WHM/cPanel root user and SSH root user are the same. So, if you change the Root password from WHM, the SSH password will also get changed.
This article will assist you to change the Root password of cPanel/WHM from WHM cPanel
- First, log in to the WHM dashboard. Then, in the WHM search box, type ‘root pass’ and select Change Root Password under Server Configuration.
- Click on ‘Change root password’ under server configuration.
