How to Change a CVS Password

Save

CVS (Concurrent Version System) is a type of file repository used by programmers to help track changes and make collaboration easier between multiple team members than when using standard programming software. If you have CVS installed on your server and need to change the password, you can do so from the command line.

Things You'll Need

  • CVS installed on your server
  • Log in to the server with an account that has root privileges.

  • Open a command terminal by opening the "System" menu and clicking on "Terminal."

  • Type "passwd cvs" (without quotes) and press the "Enter" key to start the CVS password change process.

  • Type the new password for CVS, press the "Enter" key and then repeat this step to confirm that the new password was typed correctly. The password is successfully changed once the message "all authentication tokens updated successfully" appears on the screen.
