Wiki Administrator User

The AdminUser allows you to login without needing to register a user, or to temporarily login as AdminUser 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 AdminToggle topic to obtain admin rights.

How to login as AdminUser

ALERT! NOTE: If you lock yourself out of AdminUser during setup activities, never established a password, or have forgotten the password, See InstallationGuide for information on configuring the internal admin password..

Prerequisites

  • 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.

ALERT! 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.
