Subject: Lost Password
I am working on a terminal where the previous user is logged-in. No one at our company knows anything about a root password, or any username and password.  How can I reset access to our DokuWiki? We are running under Linux.

The simplest solution is if you have write access to the files in the conf directory.  If so, then you can register as a user, then in the file users.auth.php, add 'admin' to your entry--here assuming that you are 'jones':


If you don't have write access, since it seems to be a company server, have the IT dept do this for you.
