If your users are user accounts setup on the system, well, you need to use passwd <username>

And if they are users that use their own ftp database/passwd type file.. well, I'm sure that program has its own way of changing/updating users.

But of course, you gave very vague information so your only going to get very vague replies as we can't guess these things.
