Users can login using root's password!
« on: January 11, 2021, 07:28:30 PM »
Hi,
today in a fresh installation I created the first user, with its username and its password.
The I went to the user web panel and (for mistake) I use the user's username and root's password, then .... I got correctly logged in!
I tried to replicate the behavior on a new installation, and I got the same problem.
User can successfully login both with its own password and root's password as well... how can it be??

That's perfectly fine and how things should be!
Why do you see a problem - unless you're gonna tell all your users the root password?
Jeez!

(Does facebook/instagram allow you to search for cheap Windoze shared hosting?)

That's fine.
Maybe this is wanted to allow admin to log in and see users' side without asking them their password?
