Hi

After successful installation, I've changed the root password with a new strong password (30 characters length) using the CWP change password page.

Now, I can't log in with the new password or even the old password!
Does it take a maximum length from the 30 characters? if so how much is the default length it takes?

Please help ASAP

Thanks in advance.

Change it via machine control panel eg. virtualizator if VPS.

Just go to your server panel and change root password there. CWP/SSH will recognize new password once you change it via server panel.

That's what I've done.

I opened the server panel and change root password there and now I can't log in from SSH or CWP using old or new passwords!

Hi, yes I had the same problem , changing ROOT password from with IN CWP ,, you can not log in.

Had to access the Server panel and change root there.

Users and Root password changes seems to not work 100% right now.

@seco  I'm talking about server panel and not CWP, once you change root pw in Server Panel you'll be able to login to CWP. Server panel has higher priority to set new root password and it will override/overwrite old password with new one.

Otherwise if your server still has no any important files best solution for you is to reinstall server because you have nothing to lose in that case.
