Automatically change passwords of accounts

#1 Post by ahcsmit » 2008-07-18 07:26

Is it possible to schedule a change of user passwords in some way? We use filezilla for customers and have a directory structure similar as below

FTPROOT
|
----- cust1
|
----- cust2
|
----- etc.

Customer 1 is logging on to cust1 and so on. Is it possible to change the passwords of the customer accounts periodically with a script?

Just edit FileZilla Server.xml directly and afterwards call "FileZilla Server.exe" /reload-config

Passwords are 'encrypted' in the xml file. Can i put the passwords in in plain text?
