Hey all!

I have a quick question. I need to set the minimum password for the accounts that people register to be at 7, instead of the default one. Preferably 8 symbols.

Which files should I edit?
I am using the 3.0.3.2 version, as well as quickcheckout extension, if that matters.

Thank you very much!

You may want to post in the commercial section if plan on messing with the authentication. Otherwise if you understand the risk, you can search in the validate methods to increase the length. Keep in mind that there are a quite a few areas in OC where this is used, password reset, affiliate, account password, etc... best know what you are doing. Further you also have to update the appropriate language error message for the new length.

You can reference here for register.php, but again there are many other areas..:.

Maybe look for something on the marketplace first.

ditto above ..
there is also appears to be an issue with some characters in the password database I can’t find the thread right now but you can search .. maybe someone else will post but the result would be .. maybe not the best idea.

this will explain both how to do it yourself and why its not a good idea to do so ..

I also wouldn't advise using anything from that forum post, what they are doing there is only client side, which is useless. Validation checks need to be handled server side.

So there is no way to accomplish that? I went through the marketplace, but unfortunately there is nothing regarding password length.
I provide a service, which has hard requirement of the password being at least 7, preferably 8+ symbols. So not being able to set that as a requirement within opencart will make my life a living nightmare, as people will register accounts and use 6symbol passwords, and that will kill my automation.

Sure there is a way, its actually simple if you know what you are doing and know OC well.

You may want to head over to the commercial section someone should be able to help you out. It's really not all that involved.

Aside from the Commercial Support section of the forum, you could also look on the Marketplace for an extension that could provide what you need.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I did look for it, however I can't seem to find one that would help out with the actual length of the pass.

Thanks!

In this case, posting in the Commercial Support section of the forum to get this done as a custom job might be the right course of action.

Just a quick update on this - I got it resolved. For anyone looking to do that in the future, here is what needs to be done:

You need to edit:
catalog/controller/account/register.php
catalog/controller/account/password.php
catalog/controller/account/reset.php
catalog/controller/checkout/register.php
catalog/controller/affiliate/register.php


When you do - look for code:

Code: Select all

if ((utf8_strlen(html_entity_decode($this->request->post['password'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8')) < 4) || (utf8_strlen(html_entity_decode($this->request->post['password'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8')) > 40)) {
and replace it with:

Code: Select all

if ((utf8_strlen(html_entity_decode($this->request->post['password'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8')) < 8) || (utf8_strlen(html_entity_decode($this->request->post['password'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8')) > 40)) {
Basically replace the < 4 with < 8 or whatever length you desire.

After you do that - refresh OCMod (Extensions->Modifications and hit Refresh) and then from Dashboard, gears from right top (under Logout), clear Theme cache, Sass cache.

Thank you to user @xxvirusxx for pointing me in the right direction.

Thanks to everyone that tried to help me out :-)
