TWiki Administrator User

The TWiki Admin User has been added to TWiki 4.2.0 to make it possible to login without needing to create a TWiki User, or to temporarily login as TWiki Admin User using the password set in configure, and then log back out to the same User and Group as before funny facebook statuses

This means it is no longer necessary to add yourself to the TWiki Admin Group, and you will be able to quicky change to Admin User (and back to your user) only when you need to.

How to login as TWiki Admin User

ALERT! NOTE: If you lock yourself out of TWiki Admin User during setup activities or have forgotten the configure password, you can unset the configure password by editing the lib/LocalSite.cfg file and deleting the line that starts with $TWiki::cfg{Password} and then set it funny quotes again by saving your settings in configure.

  • Security Setup : Sessions : {UserClientSession} needs to be enabled in configure
  • a configure password (otherwise the Admin login is automatically disabled.)
  • If your TWiki is configured to use ApacheLoginManager, you will need to log in as a valid user first.
