HowTo Change Password direct on SquirrelMail Login Page


Hi folks,


Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
SquirrelMail


HowTo Change Password by users direct on the Login Page of SquirrelMail NOT via Usermin which I'm now doing.


I suppose it needs following package for my server.

Plugins
Change password
http://www.squirrelmail.org/plugins_...?category_id=5

Change_passwd
Details | Download 4.0
Original Author: Thiago Melo de Paula
This plugin is to allow your users to change his/her system password in
/etc/passwd or /etc/shadow


I found follow on googling:-
HOWTO: Add a 'Change Password' button to SquirrelMail
http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10532


very simple. But I can't make it to work. Now I have [Change
Password] button on the login page. Clicking the button popup;
Code:
Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at domain.com:2222.

Port 2222 is open confirmed with ISP. Their forum refused to help because I'm NOT running "DirAdmin". Neither can I find a solution on Internet.


Now I want to try SquirrelMail's own plugin. Please shed me some light. TIA


B.R.

Yes..you need ti download the change password plugin from Squirrell mail site.
If it having some problem..Please try with the latest squirrell mail version...

When I set-up my change pass plugin, it was not working. Then i used the latest version of squirrell mail...

Thanks for your advice.


I suppose I'm running the latest version. I download the package on their site couple days ago and install it.


There are 2 change passwords on their site;
http://www.squirrelmail.org/plugins_...?category_id=5


Change Password
and
change_password


Folks on other forum suggested me try the first one "Change Password".


I'll start later.
