Change an account password in WHM

This tutorial will show you how to change an account password in WHM

You may need to change an account password if it’s been forgotten, or if the customer wants it changed for security reasons. But remember you can tell a customer that they can change their password themselves from their CPanel so you really should only need to use the WHM password modification tool if it’s been forgotten and the customer cannot login to CPanel
