Hello,

I am trying to change Cpanel password from Cpanel >> Change Password option but it is not changing.

Change Password >> old and new pass >> Show Raw Password Change (after clicking it, it is showing blank box.

What will be the problem ?

Theme

Hi,

Can i just ask what theme is your CPanel set to load? X2? X3? Custom?

CPanel Password Change

Its X3 ...
Hi,

Can i just ask if you are using the Firefox Browser and if you by chance have the "No-Script" extension installed. Because if you do, there is a chance that many sites would not work properly as expected including your CPanel. If not could it be that your webhost is preventing you from changing the password?

Rgrds,

Hello,

The fix of this issue is very simple, just run following command on server :

chmod +s /usr/bin/passwd

and it will fix the issue for sure.

Hi there.
Same problem, but permissions on passwd are valid:
-r-sr-xr-x 2 root wheel 5912 Feb 25 01:29 /usr/bin/passwd
and perl module IO::Tty is installed.
:confused:
any suggestions?
