    The problem is this setting scale for passwords.

    If you have set the password to be greater than 50 and a user is under this you wind up with a forced redirect to the password modification screen.

    So far it sounds ok - right?

    But what if you have this password screen disabled in the feature manager?
    Now you have a problem.

    Even if you change the password in WHM it will not help.

    This forcing of the password change it seems is directly tied to the password modification screen!!!

    Someone didn't think this out it seems.

    Why would you ask?

    The point is there is such a setting - since there is such a setting then would it not make sense to take that into consideration?

    As to why I have it disabled - it because I use WHMCS and by doing it this way WHMCS is in sync with Cpanel.

    If a user wants to change their password they do it in WHMCS.
