For log in to CentOS Web Panel you should use username root and the root password.
You can ask me to solve any problem with your server for some money in pm  ;)

Thanks for the replies I don't want my root user to have a password so how can I remove the root password - and have another user as the admin for the control panel - or is it possible to use 2 factor login to make it a bit more secure

thanks

Any reason why you don't want a root password? You are making your server a free for all server for spammers and botnet exploiters
