Plesk Automation :: Change Mail Password From Shell

Mar 6, 2014

we have identified a number of customers with weak passwords - we wish to send them an email and then wait 1 hour - then change their passwords to the new password we have identified - due to them being across multiple domains, we don't want to do this via the PPA web gui - it would take quite a long time.

What is/are the commands for changing mailbox password for SMTP/IMAP/POP3??

i.e., is there a PPA command for changing both sides of send/receive?

How To Execute Shell Scripts As Some User

Nov 18, 2007

I'm trying to write some scripts that automate the installation of a website with a content management system. This includes creating domains, installing databases etc via plesk API.

Now we have it creating the domains and databases via plesk, this is not the issue. It's permission problems issuing commands on the server.

I need to have the script install the cms and this requires writing files to a folder on the server owned by a user which is created with the domain.

user creates with ftp user name tim
Plesk makes directory on webserver called ~/vhosts/
inside this directory is a folder called httpdocs.
All the files within this folder are owned by tim.

Now my script (running as 'apache' in a folder owned by 'admin') needs to write/edit files to this directory as the user tim (or whatever user was created when the domain was set up).

How can I do this from a php script?

My idea would be to log in as the new user and then start issuing commands but I don't know how to login a user from a script.

I've tried exec, exec_shell etc
trying to log in via script as the new user using sudo/su/suid etc but they all ask for a password (for obvious reasons) but I cannot see a way to send the password to the command with the script. Ssh?

Here's some pseudocode that demonstrates what I'm trying to do, if you can think of a better way I'm all ears.

//User Fills in CMS/Domain information which becomes Form_Data

//uses plesk to create blank domain, create email addresses and empty database
Make_Domain(Form_Data) {
Plesk = Get_Plesk_Object();

//HERE IS WHERE I AM HAVING TROUBLE: I can't figure out how to change the user so I can install files to a
// different directory other than the current user's directory (admin)

Build_CMS(Form_Data) {

change_to_user(Form_Data.ftp_username, FormData.ftp_password);
unpack_CMS_archive_into(user_directory); //eg unpack cms.tar into '' (if the above command didn't switch the current directory to users home directory)

//initialises CMS config files and installs CMS data to database
//albeit complex, most important part of script

Confirm_Tim_Is_Awesome() {
while (getTim().has_moustache()) {
echo "<em>You're still awesome. </em>";

Changing FTP User Password

May 9, 2008

I've got an ftp account that was created in the very beginning and now I want to change the password to it but when I log in to my PLESK WINDOWS OS Control Panel and go under ftp accounts, I only see one account on there which is not what I've been using.

My questions is, is there another way of locating other ftp accounts that I have? In this case, its the account that I've been always using and its not under ftp account in my plesk cp.

I just really need to change the password to it n I can't find it.

Im on Plesk Windows OS

Cpanel Password Change

Mar 17, 2007

I searched the forum articles but couldn not find specifically what I wanted..
just learning with my dedicated server...

I want to change my cpanel password and ftp password but NOT change the msql server password. I tried to do it in WHM it also changes the database to my website and causes it to go down. (so I changed it back)

I tried to change it under: [URL to actual WHM removed] Password Modification in WHM but it changed the databse program as well.

Again all I want to change is the Cpanel acces and main FTP pass

Im doing this to keep old programmers out of my server)

How Would A Hacker Change A Cpanel Password

Jan 5, 2008

I'm having a problem with a hacker...using insecure scripts on my user's accounts he changes Cpanel passwords. I do not understand how a script running as user nobody would change a Cpanel password. Any ideas on that ?

I am using mod security (rules from, register_globals are disabled. I also disabled the password reset feature as I thought the hacker may be resetting the passwords and then reading the new password from the email account on the server using the insecure script.

Unfortunately this guy simply doesn't stop...he seems to have a reverse DNS list or something. He is only attacking accounts on one specific server of mine but I am pretty sure he doesn't have root access.
