You didn't need to do that. To change passwords there are two methods:

For an immediate change:
In the MUD type:
set file [name] [new-password]

You can also change it from the shell menu, but you have to reboot the
MUD for the change to take affect because it changes the playerfile, but
not the data in memory.
Like so:
bin/mudpasswd lib/etc/players [name] [new-password]
