Subject: Hashes not encryption.
I've just installed DokuWiki to have a look and I like it.

But in the Configuration Manager > Authentication > "Password encryption method"

This should really say "Hashing" method as the two things are not the same. Encryption is a two way function; what is encrypted can be decrypted. Hashing is a one way process.
