    Hi there,

    Could someone help me, I would like get a email when anyone changes a password, cpanel mainly. We have a very small server and want to keep track of any of these sorts of thing so we have them on log.

    The way I would like it to work is,
    User changes password -> Emails user (as normal) & Emails admin with same email.

    Thanks!

    You can use Shadow file to see the last modified date. Check out this article:

    - Removed -

    You can set up a cron job to see if the file is modified.

    In your cPanel, top right corner is your username. On that menu select Contact Information. There, you'll see this:

    Is there anyway that I can make it default to have a address in the secondary spot?
