    Hi All,

    I am running a plesk 10 server, and this afternoon I change somewhere in the control panel so that the password policy (strength) is "very high".

    Now I am creating sites, but this password policy is TOO high.

    But I cannot find a way to put it back to "normal", I have searched everywhere in the controlpanel but cannot find it anymore.

    So my question is where to find the policy of setting the password policy higher or lower for creating a site.

    Thank you already for your help.

    Tim

    This resolve only applies for mail password.
    Subscriptions password is very high, still.

    I had a similar problem and found the solution. To control required password strength for subscription/domain users, you use the 'server_pref' CLI command.

    /usr/local/psa/bin/server_pref

    I recommend reading the help:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/server_pref --help

    Basically:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/server_pref -u -min_password_strength <very_weak|weak|medium|strong|very_strong>
