Danielss89well its a password encrypted by postfixadmin, tvynr, and i want the user to be able to change their password, so i has to find out which encryption it is
tvynrDanielss89: You really don't want to mess with that kind of thing directly. I'm taking it that the user in question doesn't have permission to run postfixadmin. How about writing a script that calls postfixadmin to change a password? Then you can make the script owned by root and give sudo access to it.
Danielss89: I have similar scripts on my machine. For instance, I have a script called "loopmount" that allows users who have sudo access to it to mount a .iso in /media/loop. But since they only have sudo access to that script and not mount itself, it's relatively safe (unless I made the script vulnerable).

test__hi, whats wrong in this dhcpd.conf ? I want PXE booting http://pastebin.ca/495613
Danielss89tvynr im writing a mail function for my website, and my userinfo is stored in one table and then postfix uses user info from another table...
and i have to make those two work together..
tvynrDanielss89: So you want to have your web app be able to change the password stored in postfix's table based upon the information it contains?
Danielss89no not based on the information..
ustunozgurCyberTop: did you try as a normal user from cli?
tvynrDanielss89: Well, you want a webapp to change a postfix user's password, though?
Danielss89i just want the user to be able to change password, and for that i just have to find out which encryption is used so that i can encrypt the new password
yeah :P
HyperDevilwhy is Hyper-Threading disabled with my smp linux kernel on Etch?
tvynrDanielss89: I agree with your first statement but not your following assumption. I don't think you need to encrypt the new password; I think it'd be best for you to use whatever utility postfix would normally use for changing passwords and let postfix do the work.
CyberTopustunozgur: i don't understand
Danielss89ok..
tvynrDanielss89: If you were root on the machine and wanted to change a postfix user's password manually, how would you do it?
orsonorktest_: sorry, i can't help you, i've never worked with PXE booting
Danielss89hmm i wonder if i can change the postfix system just to read out info from my table
tvynr well the thing is that all the user info is stored in mysql
tvynrDanielss89: Well, yes. But I'd be willing to bet that there's a command-line utility or some other simple interface to let a sysadmin change a password.
Danielss89: I use Courier for my mail server. It's ugly at the moment, but since it's a private mail server I can live with ugly. There are a series of steps I can use to change a user's password; I put 'em in a script.
ustunozgurCyberdork: From what I understand, root cannor access X. Ok, now first install "sudo" and "gksu" packages.
Danielss89okey tvynr
tvynrDanielss89: Sadly, of course, the script has to be run as root. But you could give the daemon user sudo access to that so that your webapp could run a subprocess call to sudo to run the script.
Danielss89ok..
HyperDevilwhy is Hyper-Threading disabled with my smp linux kernel on Etch?
tvynrDanielss89: Suffice to say that I really don't think you want to mess with the guts of postfix nor its data. The easiest and most maintainable way to handle it would be to get postfix to do the work for you. :)
Danielss89okey tvynr thx.. i will try that
tvynrvaldyn: I found the -w flag for hdparm that says "Perform a device reset", which seems to be what I want. However, it also says "DANGEROUS" beside that. Should I be hesitant to hdparm -w /dev/hdb to reset the drive? Am I likely to explode?
Danielss89: No problem. Good luck to you. :)
mike1ohow can I execute xsane without root privileges?
