Rep: Reputation: 30 /bin/su incorrect password

I am trying to run a script that creates Unix users through a web browser. It is called autouseradd, and uses Whenever it is run I get the error:

user test3 added.Setting password. This may take a while. Do NOT click 'Stop'.
/bin/su: incorrect password

I know that this is not the script generating this message because "/bin/su: incorrect password" is nowhere in the script. Do I need to specify the root password somewhere in

Any help would be appreciated.
