Hi, I've my ISPConfig box up and running. I'm concerned about which passwords shouldn't use any special character. My MySQL root password DOES, and it's working just fine. The password contains these characters: @#$ I've got some websites/email running, no problems at all. Should I have any problem ? I have also some system users who were added by hand (nothing to do with the ISPConfig system), whose passwords contain special chars like @ # $, and they can log in fine (as usually in any linux system). On the other hand, in one of those websites I created a user (through the ISPConfig web interface), say user1, with a password like: aaaaaaa-8888aa So, a word (7 chars), a dash, a number, and another word. The password is being cut at the dash, I can login in the system, in the webmail and through the pop3 server using just: aaaaaaa- Furthermore, if I add anything next to the dash I still can login, too. Now, I have another user with a similar password, but the first word, instead of 7 chars, it has just two chars, a dash and a number. It's like this: aa-8888 The problem described above does not apply to this user. Weird! Can anyone of you explain me why is this happening ? Which are the restrictions in the password within the ISPConfig system ? To which users do they apply ? The strange thing is that my ISPConfig admin has a password with special chars, and it works fine !! Thanks in advance.
