How to change your math account password

Web-based interface to change password

To change your password, simply click "account Info" at the very top of the Math website after logging in, then click the "change account password" link.

 

Command-line interface to change password

It's easier to go to https://www.math.lsu.edu/myinfo/passwd/ but if you prefer using the command line:

  • Use standard SSH software to connect to julia.math.lsu.edu. (Under Linux or Mac, open a Terminal and issue the command ssh yourmathusername@julia.math.lsu.edu then hit enter. On a Windows computer, you'll need SSH software. See below.)
  • Log in to julia using your math account and existing math password
  • On julia, type the command passwd (and hit enter)
  • You will be prompted once for your old password, and twice for the new one
  • Type the command exit (and hit enter)

If you receive an error trying to change your password, please take note of the rules given on the page https://www.math.lsu.edu/myinfo/passwd/
