Hi there!

How do I add users to a wiki site? I.e. people which
are allowed to 'sign in'. btw: I'm using the mysql mode
for wiki.
Thanks for your help!

    I have the same problem with the current 1.3 tarball release
    I get to a login page, but how do I register new users?

    So far, only the admin account that I've set in index.php is
    working..
    I also have bogousers turned on, thinking it would help, but
    it doesn't ..

    I'm new to this also but I'll try to help: Try opening the
    page UserRegistration that should be a page which allows you
    to set up a new user.

    Same problem here. Has development stopped on phpWiki or
    something? Only 10 answered support requests...

    I've found the solution to this, or at least, the intended
    solution. Haven't actually tried it yet.

    Type something in the "sign in" box and press enter.
    You'll see the message: "You may sign in using any WikiWord
    as a UserId. ( etc. may be used too). The
    UserId will be used as a link in RecentChanges to your
    UserId page, your HomePage. New users may use an empty
    password."

    That's it. To register as a new user, type the intended user
    name into the box and leave the password blank. Then do a
    search for UserPreferences and change your password there.

    The trouble with this is, new users don't see the message
    until they try and sign on.

    Users usually create themselves.

    If you don't want to allow users to create themselves, setup
    another auth scheme without self-creating users.
    i.e. a Db setup without the the create SQL, or a File setup.

    These kind question are usually asked and answered in the
    mailinglist.
