    Not sure if this is really a skin issue but I have been doing a new skin and it works OK apart from the password change where I constantly get:

    spawn /usr/bin/passwd Changing password for test (current) UNIX password: New UNIX password: BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word


    Password is too simple

    Has the password system been changed on Cpanel?
    I can't get things like horse567
    or d5678th to be accepted.
    Or have I made an error in the cpanel tags somewhere?

    for as long as i can remember, it always gives that error when you use a dictionary word password. i\'ve been using cpanel since may 2000, so it has to have been there for a long time since i can\'t remember it ever working with something simple. d5678th is odd that it isn\'t accepted, since obviously it isn\'t a dictionary word.

    the java code in the html for the password file doesn\'t have the code to check what kind of word has been used, it only checks if the two match and if it is longer than 5 and shorter than 15 characters. so i would think that what checks the word is hard coded into cpanel??
