Configuration Setting: superuser

Specifies who has superuser rights in DokuWiki. Superusers always have all permissions regardless of ACL restrictions and are allowed to edit ACL restrictions (think root).

You can set either a username, a list of usernames (“admin1,admin2”), or the name of a group by prepending an @ char to the groupname. If you run the DokuWiki installer and choose to enable ACL, this setting will be '@admin'. To change or set the superuser manually, edit the file conf/local.php and change the setting $conf['superuser'] to the username of the user(s) who are designated superuser.

  • Type: String
  • Default: !!not set!!

Danger: Changing this option could make your wiki and the configuration menu inaccessible.
