Control Panels CentOS

Yesterday, I update my cPanel version on my droplet. After update, it says that I have to enable cpHulk. So, I enable it, with a bunch of config that I don't event understand. The thing that I remember that I disabled root login trough WHM and SSH. I don't have any other login except root for WHM and SSH.

I did some tutorial that I found:

  1. I reset the root password at DigitalOcean dashboard, and I try to login SSH which is not working.
  2. I reset password and login to WHM, also not working.
  3. I tried to boot from recovery ISO and enable SSH root login, also not working.

And my question: How to enable root login and password authentication trough recovery web console?
