    "Huh??" means "We don't understand!".

    Post something in real English so we can understand and you might get some help. The act of putting it in a clear English statement may even solve it for you (it does for me sometimes).

    Problem - reset pass to all accounts

    I'm sorry.

    I know that I can arrange this my problem if to modify the password of the users being used "# passwd user", now I need to know if it is possible to reset all the passwords of the accounts in my server.

    is possible??




    Thanks,

    Simplest method: You can just run the passwd command for every user, or do it from cpanel.

    If you have way too many users for that, check out the 'chpasswd' command -
    '# man chpasswd' will tell you how to use it.
    (or here: http://www.rt.com/man/chpasswd.8.html)

    If that command doesn't exist on your machine, then try checking out the 'SEE ALSO' section at the bottom of the '# man passwd' page as it may give you some other options.

    Note - you really, REALLY don't want to set all your accounts to the same password. If you do that, you'll have too many problems to even mention here. If you're unsure how to do this you can hire a professional to do it for around $50US for an hour (that's all it should take).
