How to enable forgot password


Enabling forgot password allows users to retrieve their FTP password from the log-in console. You'll need to write your own PHP function to handle the processes on your server.

Monsta FTP will pass the value $username, which is the user's FTP login, to your function:

Your function can return one of the three following results:

1. If there's no result returned the language variable FORGOT_PASSWORD_SUCCEEDED will be displayed on-screen.
2. If a result is returned then it will be displayed on-screen (a language variable can be substituted in.)
3. An exception is raised, which if raised with a message, will be displayed on-screen, otherwise the language variable FORGOT_PASSWORD_FAILED will be displayed on-screen.
