As a new RT admin, I am following
“4) Change the password. Root’s password for the web interface is
password. Not changing this is a security risk.”
Sounds like good advice to me so I went into the web UI, logged in as
root successfully and attempted to change the password. I entered new
values in the ‘New Password’ & ‘Retype Password’ fields and clicked
error: The crypt() function is unimplemented due to excessive
paranoia. at /usr/local/rt3/lib/RT/User_Overlay.pm line 1119.
1118: # if it’s a historical password we say ok.
1119: if ($self->__Value(‘Password’) eq crypt($value,
1120: or $self->_GeneratePasswordBase64($value) eq
1122: # …but upgrade the legacy password inplace.
1123: $self->SUPER::SetPassword( $self->_GeneratePassword($value) );

I searched around in the archives a while, and found most posts
concerning password were permissions issues, so no luck.
