I've bought and downloaded the MacOS Server application to host a VPN and to host a Satis repository.
When enabling either the VPN or Websites services, a dialogue appears asking "Do you want to change how your password is stored?", with the advice that "Authenticating to this service requires storing your password in a less secure form."
I can't find any further information on this, not from the Server documentation, nor from searching on Google.
- What does this actually mean?
- Why is this necessary?
- Does it pertain to my MacOS user account credentials? If so, will it only affect the credentials of the account that the Server application is being run from (if this is the case, I will create a separate user account to run the Server app)?
Many thanks for your time and help.
