Users Can’t Change Password – cPanel

When trying to change their password in cPanel, users get the following error:

There was an error manipulating the password file.
This generally means you entered your old password incorrectly.

This has been seen on CentOS and Redhat servers running cPanel 11. The known fix is to run:

chmod +s /usr/bin/passwd
