Openfire 3.6.0 & Pidgin - how to change the password by users?


I tested Openfire. For my community I want to install a Jabber server and manage user registrations by myself. The adminitration for users and groups is great. But I want, that users can change their passwords by themself.

I read some docs, but I did’nt found a hint.

Do I need an additional plugin?

I think, it is not important, whether the users can use a web interface or they change their password by an IM client like Pidgin.

Has anybody an hint?

Ciao, Q


Users can change their passwords with Pidgin. Accounts menu -> Account -> Change password.

You also need to allow this activitiy by checking the /reg-settings.jsp on your admin console.
