#4107 Auto Update Access Control Users on password change.


I'm sorry if this is a duplicate bug report. I've searched the repository and didn't see anything about it so I figured I would post it. When you select Add a user when a Unix user is added, Change the user when a Unix user is changed and, Delete the user when a Unix user is deleted under access controls on apache and have a user where the password is set to change on next login the password is not updated in the apache user controls when it is changed.

For example, create a user bob through website with default password set to password. Select user must change password on next login. When the user changes the password the account that is made in the apache access controls is not updated on the password change. I am running Ubuntu Linux 11.10, Kernel: Linux 3.0.0-21-generic on x86_64. Thanks.

    Unfortunately that isn't possible - when the password is changed upon login, this is done by the SSH server or passwd command, not Webmin. So Webmin has no way to also update the Apache users file.
