Wiki Administrator User
The Admin User
allows you to login without needing to register a user,
or to temporarily login as Admin User
using the password set in configure, and then log back out to the same User and Group as before.
If your system is configured using a UserMapper that permits group maintenance, (TopicUserMapping for example) it is recommended to include the Admin Toggle
topic to obtain admin rights.
- Login as the internal Wiki administrator:
- Foswiki is configured using ApacheLogin, please login as a normal user first. Then the Admin Login will replace this text
- Logout from Administrator:
If you lock yourself out of AdminUser during setup activities, never established a password, or have forgotten the password,
See Installation Guide#Internal Admin
for information on configuring the
Security and Authentication -> Sessions : Use Client Sessions: must be enabled in configure (this is the default)
Security and Authentication, -> Passwords : Internal Admin Password: must be set otherwise the internal admin user is automatically disabled. A password is not set by default.
- If your Foswiki is configured to use ApacheLoginManager, you will need to log in as a valid user first.
Do not add
AdminUser to your
.htpasswd file or other authentication system. You should only access the
AdminUser by logging in
with the the internal admin user admin using the password set under the Passwords tab in
bin/configure script. Use the login link on this page, or log in directly with
Template Login. Logging in with the
AdminUser WikiName through the normal authentication process will not work, and will not acquire admin rights.
