    How do i disable my users from changing thier passwords? as the password is used in the forums, billing system, support system, etc and if they change a password in one it dosent take an effect elseware.

    is there a way to do this ?

    Go on, have a guess
    Rmove the Password Change option from WHM > Feature Manager > Edit Feature List

    Also ensure that you have disabled WHM > Tweak Settings > Allow cPanel users to reset their password via email

    Having said that, as good security advice and policy you should be encouraging your users to change their passwords on a regular basis (e.g. monthly).

    Thanks ...but...

    thanks for the reply but i thouraly agree with the password changing but there is no other way to "Sync" the databases ..becuase the way modernbill (PLEASE SAVE THE FLAMING-AND DO IT SOME WARE ELSE) is set up and Invision it is hard to get all 3 to use the one username and password from the DB....

    any ideas though i will more than happily consider...

    cheers

    The above is a solution for cPanel.

    However, passwords and authentication for third party applications that you or your users install (like forums, galleries, etc...) are not connected with whm/cpanel passwords. You would have to figure out how to disable users from changing their passwords within each application.

    Jak, how did you use the same password for all 3 programs like Modern Bill and all the others? Is there a way to combine the user database for all 3 somehow? And if so, the password stored for cPanel in the mySQL uses some sort of weird one way hashing, do you know how to duplicate that hashing?
