(Home >> Preferences >> Change Password)
This feature allows you to change your cPanel account’s main password.
To change your password, you must know your original password.
Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word and contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
To change your password, perform the following steps:
Select the Synchronize MySQL password checkbox if you wish to use the same password for both MySQL® and the cPanel account.
This option is only available if the
.my.cnf file is present in the user's home directory.
If you use this feature to change your password, your main FTP account password and system email address password will also change.
