how can i recover my WHP username/password


i wanted to know how to recover my whp username/password

Are you referring to WHM password? You mentioned to recover username/password. Do you have root access of your server?

WHM is provided with Reseller hosting plans also. if you are using Reseller hosting then you will need to contact to your hosting provider inorder to reset your password. But if you have lost your root password/Master WHM password then you will need to contact to your server provider to reset it.

Thank you.

You can reset the password using following command from shell and use new root password to login into WHM
