    Squirrelmail change_password using courrierpasswd and poppassd SOLVED

    Last week ik have installed ISPconfig on my Dell PE1550 using the following howto:


    Now im trying to enable change_password plugin in squirrel but it doenst work (yet)

    I downloaded the squirrelmail change_pass module from


    and gextracted it in the squirrelmail/plugins directory (I have a standalone squirellmail installation, not the ISPconfig plugin)

    The plugin tries to use poppassd and the courrierpassd. So i did:

    apt-get install courierpassd
    apt-get install poppassd

    But when using netstat -nlp there is nothing listening on port 106.

    Can somebody help me out ?

    When i read /etc/inetd.conf it says

    #<off># ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/proftpd
    poppassd stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/poppassd

    Ah crap, seems that i only need to do

    /etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart

    The plugin is working now, i can succesfully change passwords

    Al i have tot do is limit the ip binding

    root@server:/etc# netstat -lnpt | grep 106
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN 15716/inetd

    To make a little how to for other users:

    apt-get install poppassd (courierpassd, is not necessary)

    probally openbsd-inetd will be installed too

    /etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart

    Now check if the deamon is there

    root@server:/etc# netstat -lnpt | grep 106
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN 15716/inetd

    If everything is ok, then continue if not fix that first

    Go to the plugins directory of squirrelmail

    cd /var/www/web3/web/plugins/

    Download the squirrelmail change_pass pluging from:

    wget http://www.squirrelmail.org/countdl...ail.org/plugins/change_pass-2.7a-1.4.x.tar.gz

    untar it using tar xvfz change_pass-2.7a-1.4.x.tar.gz

    chown the unpacked files to the default of your webiste (check wit ls -ltrh)

    chown root:web3 change_pass/ -R

    Change the squirellmail config file

    vim /var/www/web3/web/config/config.php and add the new plugin tot the current list of plugins. Save the file

    Als should be fine for now.

    Try to change password using the squirellmail webinterface
