Bug: Change Password does not work on Win2K

Thanks to your work, registering and password do now work on Win2K with Apache. But you can't change or reset your password on Win2K.

I fixed the bin/passwd perl script. See Fix record.

Test case

  • Install TWikiRelease01Sep2001 on the configuration given below
  • Register a user
  • login, everything works fine
  • go to TWiki.ChangePassword and change your password
  • password is still unchanged

Fix record

I had to add some code from bin/register to bin/passwd. There is just no code to handle SHA1-passwords in bin/passwd

The new script is attached to the report.

I have never programmed perl before, so please do not expect clean and bugfree code smile

Thanks for the fixes - your code looks fine to me anyway :)... I've committed this to CVS for the TWikiAlphaRelease. I made one change to use 'require' instead of 'use', so that the conditional code is executed only at run time, avoiding problems on Linux/Unix.

I have also fixed the ChangePassword page here on TWiki.org, which was pointing to MAINWEB, causing the OK button to break.
