    Is there any way to override the password/security policies I've set up on my CentOS Xen VPS running WHM/cPanel temporarily, so that either I, or one of my cPanel account-holders can change a password (such as their cPanel account, an email account, etc.) to something less secure than whatever I've set the default security score as (such as 50)?

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    Yes, this is adjustable via:

    "WHM Home » Security Center » Password Strength Configuration"

    You would have to temporarily modify the value and then change it back when finished.

    Thank you.

    But how do I override it temporarily? Would I just adjust the score down, have the password change made, and then adjust it up again?

    That would work.

    Could you elaborate on how it does not work correctly?

    Thank you.
