    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 ?

    You might try clearing your browser cache to see if that helps.

    CPanel Password Change

    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,
    -Xyber.

    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.

    Also don't forget to install perl module IO::Tty.

    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?
