Hello Friend,

In this post,we will learn how to access WHM without password.

Yes, it is possible. But the condition is, you must have SSH access to the server.

Here is the solution:

Login to your server via SSH and execute the below command:

whmapi1 create_user_session user=root service=whostmgrd

Once you execute the above command, you will get a temporary URL. Copy the URL and access it in your browser. You will be able to access WHM without any issue.

 

Explanation:

whmapi1: It is a API of WHM, which uses all the features of the WHM. For more detailed explanation, refer cPanel documentation.

whostmgrd: It is a service for WHM. Below are some services in cPanel server.

cPanel (cpaneld)
WHM (whostmgrd)
Webmail (webmaild)
Web Disk (cpdavd)
FTP (ftpd)
SSH (sshd)
SMTP (smtp)
POP3 (pop3)
IMAP (imap)

NOTE: Once you logged out from WHM, the session will expire. To access WHM again, you need to create the session once again by the same command.
