Locked Out!

Jun 10, 2015 - Tags:

And so, I got locked out of my own cPanel server. I could not SSH, view a Website, or open the WHM console -- I was stuck. It was stupid really. I tried to set up an icon in my file manager so I could access a customer's FTP account. Except I tried to set it up as an SCP account (I don't do FTP much). Well, after trying a few times and failing, my server did was I told it do; it locked me out.

  • I appreciate the reply. Maybe you could bundle mobile data with the home plan, then at times like this… https://t.co/NFJHolAdXM 4 hours 32 min ago
  • My apologies about the downtime. I will pass your feedback along, hopefully the downtime won't be long. ^Map 4 hours 39 min ago
