cpanel password extension - no CPanel pw reqd
« on: March 16, 2010, 10:23:39 AM »
I extended the password plugin to allow users to change their password without the need for the CPanel admininstrator credentials in the config file - didn't like that idea.

Here is the package containing 2 files: a new config default file, and a new driver file - just unpack into /plugins/password and then configure the "cpaneluserauth" parameters.

This doesn't seem to work for me. I receive the error:
Could not save new password.

It does seem to properly check the existing password however.

The default change password plugin doesn't seem to run properly with cPanel.  And the above cPanel password change like is no longer valid.  :--)

The password plugin that comes with Roundcube should work fine with cPanel, the plugin that was talked about here most likely no longer works.

When I test changing a password, it basically says unable to change password.  :--)

Have you read the README file and configured it to work with your cpanel account?

I added the below code and it said success when I tested changing a password, but when I logged out and back in, it only logs in with the original password;  Any suggestions?  :--)

// See README file for list of supported driver names.
$config['password_driver'] = 'chpasswd';

If your using cPanel the chpasswd driver wouldn't work.

I also tested the below code, but nothing seemed to happen.

// See README file for list of supported driver names.
$config['password_driver'] = 'cpanel';

You also need to read the section for the password driver your attempting to use, most require additional steps and configurations.

Below is all the code that cpanel.php has.  I doesn't see to say to change any of it.  :--)

Its in the README file in the password plugin folder, there is a section for each password driver.

I still don't appear to be cating on to all the README steps for the password plugin.  I might have a friend look at that.  :--)
