I need a script to run on a BSD unix server which will change the password of an account. The script will run at the beginning of each month and it will create a new password which includes three things: Text + Month + Year.
My goal is to make a password that changes monthly in a predicatable format. I am doing this so some software I am writing that uses MySQL can connect to the server.
Example of the kind of password I am talking about include:
In January: 0104+Za1QQ42_04
In February: 0204+Za2QQ42_04
In March: 0304+Za3QQ42_04
In this the pattern is xxxx+ZaxQQ42_xx
first 4x = mmyy
next x = the month number (1-12)
last xx = the last 2 digits of the year.
I want the script to be documented so I can change the pattern of the password. For example I might replace Za and QQ42 with some other text.
1) Complete and fully-functional working UNIX script and documented line by line.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition for a UNIX server, as follows:
a) A text file that contains the UNIX script.
b) A text file documenting the UNIX script.
c) A set of instructions on how to set up the CRON job to run this script.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
