Configuration Setting: autopasswd

DokuWiki supports two methods of password handling after a new user has been registered or when a user resets it password(password reset sents always a mail). The setting of this configuration variable determines which method is used:

  1. automatically generated passwords (1)
    • The user specifies their email address and DokuWiki generates a password and sends it to him. To use this method, set autopasswd to 1. (You can configure the “From” email address used for all mails sent through DokuWiki via the mailfrom setting.)
  2. user defined passwords (0)
    • The registration form contains two fields where the new user can type in their desired password. No email is sent. To use this method set, autopasswd to 0.
  • Type: Boolean
  • Default: 1
