chpasswd



Folks,

i´m trying to change user passwords using apache. to do so i´m using
chpasswd.
when i login as root and issue
# echo "user:pass"|chpasswd

the password is correctly changed.
but when i try as a non-root user (i.e. apache) i get
chpasswd: can't lock password file

any hint what i´m missing?
is there any caveat for this?

best regards
