$input_oldpass = (isset($_REQUEST["oldpass"]) ? $_REQUEST["oldpass"] : ""); //The original password entered from the interface
$newpass = (isset($_REQUEST["newpass"]) ? $_REQUEST["newpass"] : ""); //New password entered on the interface
$repeatpass = (isset($_REQUEST["repeatpass"]) ? $_REQUEST["repeatpass"] : ""); //Duplicate password entered on the interface
$action = (isset($_REQUEST["action"]) ? $_REQUEST["action"] : ""); //Actions submitted to the server in hide mode

if ($action!="modify") {
    $action = "view";
} else if ($authed_pass!=$input_oldpass) {
    $action = "oldpasswrong";
