[TUTORIAL] How to allow your SnappyMail users to change their mailbox passwords

CyberPanel uses Snappymail and the ChangePassword feature (now re-implemented as plugin) was removed from core.

However, you can install Change Password plugin which adds change password capability to webmail.

Install the Change Password plugin

  1. Run in SSH Terminal
$ cd /usr/local/lscp/cyberpanel/rainloop/data/_data_/_default_/plugins && wget https://github.com/josephgodwinkimani/cyberpanel-mods/raw/main/change-password.zip && unzip change-password.zip && rm -f change-password.zip 
  1. Login to SnappyMail as admin https://SERVER_URL/snappymail/?admin

  2. Go to https://SERVER_URL/snappymail/?admin#/packages activate Change Password plugin

  3. Press the gear icon besides the title of plugin and add the mariadb root and password from nano /usr/local/CyberCP/CyberCP/settings.py CTRL+W (search for) DATABASES =

  4. Change mysql statement to UPDATE e_users SET password = :newpass WHERE email = :email AND emailOwner_id = :domain

  5. Under Encrypt options In what way do you want the passwords to be encrypted? choose bcrypt and prefix as {CRYPT} (Optional encrypted password prefix, like {ARGON2I} or {BLF-CRYPT} or {SHA512-CRYPT})

  6. Change DSN from mysql:host=localhost;dbname=snappymail;charset=utf8 to mysql:host=localhost;dbname=cyberpanel;charset=utf8

Now the plugin is ready to activate. Activate it and test it will a mailbox user.

this “ispconfig” should remain unflagged?
Do I need to enable “pdo” only?

Hello @Domenico ISPConfig settings are meant for ISPConfig panel not CyberPanel. They should remain unchecked. Use PDO instead:

thanks a lot!
