Script to set userpassword


Hello all,

I have create a script to add a useraccount on my webserver. the script creates all directorys (html, cgi-bin, temp), set the permissions and send me a mail with all informations.

everything run ok but only the password.

export PASSWD=$(pwgen -1 -c -n)

now $PASSWD is the created password.

I try to use passwd or useradd -p

nothing is running .. can some on tell me how is the syntax ??

e.g

passwd -e $USERNAME $PASSWD (not running)
useradd -g ftpuser -d /var/www/$USERNAME -s /bin/ftp -m $USERNAME -p $PASSWD (not running)

Help please

Thanx, Brian

I ran into the same/similar problem last spring. Here is a link to paper I started on the subject:

Unfortunately, it is incomplete.

Because the commands involved vary from distro to distro (see Discussion),
it would be very helpful if you would tell us what distro you are using.
