Change Password - Usermin

Hi all,
Currently my clients complained unable to change the password.
I checked the error log file. It says.
==> /var/usermin/miniserv.error <==
Error: Failed to open /dev/pts/0 : No such file or directory

Failed to change password : Failed to open /dev/pts/0 : No such file or directory

I can reset the password via webmin.

Virtualmin-3.64gpl running on EC2 from Amazon Elastic Cloud Computing.
Anything wrong? What is the solution. Urgently need your feedback. Thanks.

Hrm, I’m not sure what might cause that; it seems some AMI users have seen that, though under different circumstances.

What I’d do is put all that in the bug/issue tracker (the link is at the bottom of the page), and I think Jamie can help sort that out.


Hi Eric,
Perhaps this can help to your customers.
I checked on ec2’s forum and found this link.

I mounted
mount devpts /dev/pts -t devpts
it works, pls add this into fstab as well :slight_smile:

Now i got no error and able to change the password.
Hope this helps

Opps, the link does not work. (this softwareissue?)

Sorry i don’t mean to abuse this forum, just the software convert the link to korean character
Please replace the messageID with below this. Thanks.

btw, i can’t click edit, it gave me error :slight_smile:

Please replace the messageID with
messageID=51637 &# 51637
trim it the space

Thanks for the update! I’ll point that out to Jamie so he can look into fixing this in the future.

Yeah, the forum here sucks. It’ll be nicer in the next version of the website (hopefully launching very soon).
