Maximun length of password

    Today, I am seeing a lot of bruteforce attack to my server, and it is ongoing/happening somemore. Hence, to take precaution, I change all the admin password... for Plesk, for OS, for apps...

    After that, I realised that the Plesk control panel is dead.. with the error message that connection error to the MS SQL DB.

    I am kinda panic, I thought it is finalled being hacked..

    After a few ten minutes of troubleshooting, guess what I found? My admin password is too long!! When changing the plesk admin password, it can only accept 14 characters. Anything longer than that will be trancated. Sigh.. what a heart attack.

    Anyway, story aside, I wish Plesk will fix this in the next update. Thanks

    seems this still is not fixed.

    not only it truncates i guess , it doesn't even set the truncated password nor it throws any any error on for client
