1) Run Apache as root
2) Compile PHP as CGI and enable SuEXEC

But how i'll enter old password and 2 times new password. This is the main problem.

it uses a daemon on the server (poppassd)
it comes with a sample page that you can customize that will allow you to change the password.
hope that helps,
