    I tried to change a password in Cpanel but got this error:

    Your password could not be changed because the new password is is too simple, please try again!


    The password I wanted to change to was "vr$ex%". In my opinion, this password is not too simple. I have had customers complain about not being able to change to passwords they want (not simple dictionary words).

    Is there a way to configure the parameters for what cpanel will allow passwords to be changed to? i.e. a minimum number of characters or symbols?

    thanks

    I do believe if you use 7 or 8 characters min. there should not be a problem. I've never had a problem using 8 regardless of what characters were used.

    Hi there.

    In WHM - Security Center - Password Strength Configuration - Theer´s probably a configuration of the minimum characters.

    I guess you should check there.

    The original post was from 2003. The Password Strength Configuration was added in 2008.
