I'm currently running Qmail 1.03 + Vpopmail 4.9.10 + Courier IMAP 1.3.81
+ qmailadmin 0.45 + Sqwebmail 2.0 Combo with CDB authentication.
I setup a test machine with vpopmail-5.2.1 using CDB authentication in
office and tried to upgrade. I did the following steps in an attempt to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] vpopmail-5.2.1]$ make clean [EMAIL PROTECTED] vpopmail-5.2.1]$ ./configure (with orig options) + --with-mysql=y [EMAIL PROTECTED] vpopmail-5.2.1]$ make [EMAIL PROTECTED] vpopmail-5.2.1]$ make install-strip [EMAIL PROTECTED] vpopmail-5.2.1]$ vconvert -c -m
It tells me done for everything. However, when I tried to login using POP3 access, my password was wrong. Only when I changed the user account's password then did the login work. Somehow, I feel that the vconvert program does not convert encrypted passwords correctly, or totally do not convert at all.
As such, I would like to ask if there is anyway to convert encrypted passwords from CDB - MySQL?
I asked a question similar to this recently and was told that, no, vconvert can't read the password encryption method for vpopmail 4.9.10. If you know your users' passwords you could write a script to first do `vpasswd user passwd`, then run vconvert. AFAIK there is no way to get vpopmail 4.9.10 passwords into clear text for conversion. I would love to be proved wrong, however.
