    Sorry if this has been answered, but I can't find what I want anywhere.

    I want to allow my account holders to set easy to remember passwords, because they are all students working in the same room and I don't want anything written down, for security reasons. I set a standard, easy password when I set up their accounts, but they are unable to set their own without using the password generator, which creates such as obscure scramble that they scratch it on their desk.

    Is there some way to disable this feature? Or to set it low enough that a password like mike101 would be acceptable. Right now it has to be 10 characters minimum.

    Edit the password strength

    It sounds like you may have the required password strength set relatively high. This can be adjusted in the WebHost Manager at Main >> Security Center >> Password Strength Configuration. By experimenting with this, you should be able to find a value low enough to allow very simple passwords as you mention.
