How To Enable cPanel Password Reset In WHM?

The WHM panel allows individual cPanel users to reset their password without logging into their cPanel. This option is more useful if your customers (cPanel account user) forgets the cPanel password, and you do not want them to contact you for a password reset. To do this, you have to enable the cPanel password reset from the WHM panel.

By default, these settings are already On in the WHM server and some hosting providers turn it Off. If you want to facilitate your cPanel users with a cPanel password reset link, you can enable an option called Reset Password For cPanel Accounts from WHM.

Steps to enable cPanel password reset

  1. Login to WHM Panel as root user.
  2. Under the Server Configuration menu, click on Tweak Settings.
