    I am unable to login  to my root user using ssh. I have vps server, Godaddy suggested to change password. I have changed password and tried login again but still it says Access Denied via Putty.

    On the VPS server - SSH root login is typically disabled by default - you need to log in as the server user and then SU to root.


    Since WHM now has terminal I actually find myself using SSH less - as I can do it right in WHM
