How Can a User Change His/Her Password? - 09-27-2006 , 03:12 PM
This is my first post to this group, and of the 100 threads appearing when I
subscribed, I haven't seen any mention of the problem. Nor does any of the PG
documentation I have seen refer to it:
After the admin creates a new user, I would like to have that user change the
password. A password does not seem very secure if it is shared, even with the
admin who creates the user. What is the standard methodolgy for doing this in
I'mabit perplexed by this,because it strikes me that user-level password secrecy
is just essential to overall system security. Fortunately, my PostgreSQL work
right now is all experimental, so there is no critical security problem -- until
I start using this RDBMS tool in a real-world seting.
My PG version is 8.1, running on XP Pro.

available for prying admin types? I did fnd one-- inthe console where the command was
made, but that might be a glitch in the Windows/postrges interaction, and seems
transient, going away when the console is closed.
