$status= "NOTOK";}					

if ( $password <> $password2 ){

$status= "NOTOK";}					

echo "<font face='Verdana' size='2' color=red>$msg</font><br><center><input type='button' value='Retry' onClick='history.go(-1)'></center>";
}else{ // if all validations are passed.

Then you have some work to do
this is a help forum, not a do it for you forum,
gets very tiresome


offer a form with old password, new passowrd and retype password. If old password matched the current db password and new pass and retyped pass match then update db to reflect new password!
