    Hello,
    I have recently created an external login form located on the home page of my website to login to cpanel. I want to create the 'reset' password form as well, but do not know the variables or forms required. Can anyone help?

    Thank you,
    David

    As far as I know, that's not possible at this time. However, feel welcome to customize the login theme to fit your needs and then just link to the forgot password page.

    If you want help customizing the login theme, let me know.

    Actually, I would just need know the link to the reset page if thats the case. And every page I link to displays the
    'Resetting password for sorry you must provide a user to reset the password for.'
    Anyway to link to the /resetpass/ without displaying that error?

    Thanks,
    David

    Ahhh, so is it some sort of security risk?

    It's been a while since I had a server that had that feature enabled. Actually, the screen to reset the password is just the regular login screen.

    Sending passwords over a plain-text protocol such as email is considered a security risk.
