Hello, jongmedellin

As per unixynet’s reply the droplet root password will work just fine if you try to access WHM - https://DropletIPaddress:2087

If you’ve changed the root password for the droplet then make sure to use the newly generated password in order to access WHM.

There are two components to the control panel. There’s cPanel and WHM. The root password works on the WHM UI at https://your.ip.add.ress:2087/. That’s where you put your root login and pass. Once you create cPanel accounts you’ll be able to access them through port 2083.
