I am unable to login to WHM/cPanel. What can I do?

This article applies to 123-reg Servers running cPanel.

This article will show you how you can troubleshoot login errors with WHM/cPanel.

If you enter your password incorrectly three times for WHM or cPanel then you will automatically be locked out. 

In order to login again, you must disable cPHulk by running the following command:

/usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd

You will now be able to login with root.

You can restart cPhulk in the control panel, or via the command line:

/usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/startcphulkd
