WHMCS, VIrtualmin, Passwords

Looks like the WHMCS / Virtualmin integration has a weakness - a client cannot change their Virtualmin password from within WHMCS. This is bad because WHMCS provides a login to control panel link for users. If the user changes their password from Virtualmin, then, the link fails. So, would prefer to disable this in Virtualmin and use WHMCS for users to change their passwords. This functionality exists for other control panels.

So, my Virtualmin question is this - does Virtualmin have an interface that supports an external product like WHMCS to allow them to make a call and change a users Virtualmin password?

For me, the link is broken anyway, and if I click on "Login to Control Panel" as a client from WHMCS, it says "Your browser does not support cookies, which are required for this web server to work in session authentication mode"

Yup, the Virtualmin API allows for a Virtual Server's password to be changed.

You can view that by running this on the command line:

virtualmin modify-domain

So, I unfortunately can't really speak to why WHMCS isn't setup to allow users to change that.

That's weird... I am assuming the creators of WHMCS had read the API before coding the plugin... Maybe not...
