This interface allows you to change the passwords for your reseller and cPanel accounts. Administrators can set a new password without the original password. This becomes useful when users lose, forget, or compromise their password.
You cannot retrieve passwords. If a user loses or forgets a password, you must create a new password.
cPanel users can reset their account password in cPanel’s Password and Security interface (cPanel » Home » Preferences » Password and Security)
To change an account’s password, perform the following steps:
- Select the account for which to change the password.
- Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.
- Select Enable Digest Authentication to enable digest authentication support. This option allows you to access your Web Disk through a clear text connection or an unencrypted connection. You must select this checkbox if you run Microsoft® Windows Vista®, Windows® 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10, and you access Web Disk over a clear text, unencrypted connection.
- Click Change Password.
