Topic: store password in plain

hello there ;-)

first of all thanks a lot for dbmailadmin software which i use to administrate my dbmail 3.0.2 mail server.

so far everything works perfectly but i'm looking for a way to store the passwords in plain text instead of md5

i know it is not recommended to do so but pam_mysql, which i use to do the smtp auth, can only check the passwords in plain text.

so i;m looking for a way to tell dbmailadmin to store the passwords for dbmail users in plain text instead of md5

in /libs/settings.py i found a few options

STORE_PASSWORD_IN_PLAIN = False
SQL_DEFAULT_PASSWD_SCHEME = 'MD5'

but if i do change them to

STORE_PASSWORD_IN_PLAIN = True
SQL_DEFAULT_PASSWD_SCHEME = 'PLAIN'

it doesn't change a thing and passwords are still stored as MD5 hash

any advice on how to store passwords for dbmail users in plain text would be really awesome ;-)

thanks a million

greetings
becki

Re: store password in plain

hello again ;-)

ok ... i figured it out by myself.

STORE_PASSWORD_IN_PLAIN = True

does actually work but you need to start a new session for the settings to take effect.
once i start a new session passwords are stored in plain text.

thanks again for such a nice piece of software for managing dbmail
