    Hello,
    i am running cPanel 11.25.0-E41363 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9 and centos. My users cannot change the password through their cpanel interface.
    I can change it as root, from whm.
    Any new password i choose i get the error:

    Your password could not be changed because the new password failed with the following reason : (it is based on a dictionary word), please try again!
    Changing password for user steiner.
    Changing password for steiner
    (current) UNIX password:
    New UNIX password:
    BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word
    I also changed the permissions on /usr/bin/password.
    Any hint?
    thanks in advance.

    the /script/fixeverything doesn't fix it. I also read the other posts regardig this issue.
    Expect package is installed as well.
    No suggestion?

    I am going to take a guess at this one..
    I am thinking you should go to security center then check out the
    Password Strength Configuration maybe that may have something to do with it?

    Just a guess!!!

    thanks for the hint, but the Password Strength Configuration is set up by default.
    I get that error message even I use a dictionary based word, or I use for password any characters.
