I'm rather new to this all, but I managed, with some help to install phpwiki.
Now I would like to have user authetication so I sent in the config file
ALLOW_ANON_USER = false
ALLOW_ANON_EDIT = false
ALLOW_BOGO_LOGIN = false
ALLOW_USER_PASSWORDS = true
'This works : I can get in as admin
'and as I did not see any indication how the "PersonalPage" method works, I tried the "File" method, without success.
'What I did was :
'created a password file (using the apache tool) that I called "user"
'I put this file in \wiki\user\
'then in the config file :
USER_AUTH_ORDER = "File"
USER_AUTH_POLICY = stacked
AUTH_USER_FILE = D:\EasyPHP1-8\www\wiki\User\user
AUTH_USER_FILE_STORABLE = true
When I then try to login, as debug is on, I see :
DEBUG: ALLOW_ANON_EDIT = false, ALLOW_BOGO_LOGIN = false, ALLOW_USER_PASSWORDS = true, ENABLE_PAGEPERM = true, USER_AUTH_ORDER: => File (wrongpass) => Forbidden, USER_AUTH_POLICY: stacked, PASSWORD_LENGTH_MINIMUM: 0
and I get "invalid Password"
what does "wrongpass" mean ??
Can anybody help me with this ?
Or if the PersonalPage method is easier, give me any help with that ?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help
I, too, am having log in problems. In my case, I've successfully used the file method to log in. But I don't stay logged in. Each page asks me to log in again.
I assume that it is a session problem. I've tried both file and database session types. In each case, I'm unable to find any evidence that session data has been store.
Any help would be appreciated.
so where did you put this file, what was the format and how did you refer to it ?
Are you on a windows or a Linus/Unix system ?
I think I read that the session data should be stored by the browser in a cookie, so it might just be the cookie settings in your browser ?
I'm a newbie. I just installed phpwiki, and my first question is: How will new users register, and their edits be accounted for?
My second question is: How are the other major Wiki sites (such as Wikipedia) accomplishing this? Can their methods be duplicated?
