Hi everyone, got a quick question:

 

On the Settings > Security settings page, there is an input labeled "Access key to cron script which sends e-mail notifications of password change". I looked at the reference guide to get some more information about it, but it was fairly vague.

 

Can someone please let me know what it is and what it does?

 

Thanks,

Jason

Hi Jason,

 

You can test the operation of the "Password validity period in days" and  the "Access key to cron script which sends e-mail notifications of password change" settings in the following way:

 

1. Set  "Password validity period in days"  = 1 day. It means the administrator password expires in 1 day and you have to change it.

2.  Set "Access key to cron script which sends e-mail notifications of password change" = MYPASS  

3. Run the  URL in your browser http://www.YOUR_STOR...password=MYPASS

4. After you come back to the admin panel, you will see the warning message  http://screencast.com/t/pMnDxfYXFSqd

 

Also you can create a cron script in order to run the  "http://www.YOUR_STOR...password=MYPASS" URL automatically instead of running it via browser manually.
