This interface allows you to change the
root user’s password. The system does not require the old password.
Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word, and it contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
How to change your root password
To change the
root user’s password, perform the following steps:
- Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.
- The system evaluates the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points.
0indicates a weak password, while
100indicates a very secure password.
- Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strength meter indicates that the password is equal to or greater than the required password strength.
- Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read our Password & Security documentation.
- Click Change Password.
