How to change your VPS root password

Changing your VPS root password

The root password for your VPS is the same as your WHM and first cPanel account. It can be changed either through your Krystal client area or via WHM - this guide details both methods.

Changing your VPS root password via your Krystal Hosting account

  1. Within your Krystal client area - click on the My Services icon or click Services > My Services on menu to view your current plans.
  2. Click Manage Product next to the plan you'd like to change.
  3. Select Change Password from the right-hand menu or scroll down to the Change Password section.
  4. Type a new password in the New Password box and enter the same password again in the Confirm New Password box. Click Save Changes to finish.

Changing your VPS root password via WHM

  1. Within WHM select Change Root Password from the Server Configuration menu options.
  2. Enter you new root password twice - once in the New root Password field and again in the Confirm Password field.
    Clicking the eye icon will show/hide the password you're typing and the Generate button will generate a random password you could use.
  3. Click the Change Password button to complete the process.
