The cPanel DNSONLY software allows you to run a dedicated physical nameserver. It is the simplest version of cPanel & WHM, and only replicates DNS zones to your other servers.


Iam a writer from UK. thank you for this valuable information


1. Login as root on the server

2. Run the command "passwd"

3. Enter the new password and confirm it

That's it.

You don't need to reboot the server to take it in effect. Also no need to reconfigure DNS clustering, DNS clustering rely on user accesshash not password.
