Password Validation Function

Written by @kerixa 29 August 2020

Validating passwords is a need whenever there is a panel and users most login. Therefore, you can use the following password validation function to ensure that the length of the selected password is more than 6, and it contains one upper case and one special characters. Password Structure Validation: $passVer = the password If there is an error with invalid symbols it will return the details of that error in a bullited list If the password does not meet the spefications it will return an ordered list

    with the description of why it did not meet the specifications.

    Code Snippet:
