==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====

I need to temporarily change the allowable password constraints.

https://docs.iredmail.org/iredadmin-pro … olicy.html suggests editing default_settings.py
but at the end of ...
https://forum.iredmail.org/topic15461-l … ntion.html
you state
Again, you can find default setting in /opt/www/iredadmin/libs/default_settings.py (Do not modify this file).

I should add that I have modified the default_settings.py file as suggested in the first url and restarted the server but it maintains the restrictive settings, not the temporary new looser ones.

So how do I modify the password constraints to temporarily allow less restrictive passwords please?

Thank you Zhang

Re: change password constraints

On Ubuntu 18.04, iRedAdmin(-Pro) config file is /opt/www/iredadmin/settings.py, please add your custom settings in this file.

File /opt/www/iredadmin/libs/default_settings.py is just for default settings, it will be overrode every time you upgrade iRedAdmin(-Pro), but /opt/www/iredadmin/settings.py will be copied to upgraded version.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for.
