Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Currently they are the same with 2 of my dedicated server.

I wonder if I change my cpanel whm password, will the root ssh password change too?

The other way around, if I change the ssh password with password command, will whm password change too?

This thread http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/changing-whm-root-password-command-line-34573.html seems to suggest that it's yes but somehow doesn't work for OP case.

So I ask the guru.

Yes.

WHM and SSH are both just using the login information of the user of linux operating system.

As to the specific post given in link, I don't know why the user is facing such an issue. But it is a post from 2005, perhaps it's just a bug with WHM...?
