Weak directory password needed

  • Answered
I need to use a password that does not conform to the strength requirement in cPanel. How can I get around this restriction?
Hello, Thank you for your question regarding a weak password for cPanel. Unfortunately, it is not possible to lower this password requirement in a shared environment, since it is a universal server setting. This is for security purposes. You can adjust the password strength requirement on VPS/Dedicated server plans. This is covered in our guide How to Set the Password Strength in WHM. Thank you, John-Paul
