Installing and activating this plugin changes the way, the users in DokuWiki area authenticated. Thus you might break your login! So please take care.

:!: External requirements: This plugin requires the following additional components that must be installed separately:

  • Some kind of authentication devices like keyfob, smartphone or SMS gateway.

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Configuration and Settings

In the site settings you can configure some plugin information:

  • URL of your LinOTP server. Might be something like https://localhost/validate/check
  • The users realm. If left empty, the default realm will be used.
  • Whether or not the SSL certificate should be checked. Unless you have a valid certificate by a trusted CA, you should not activate this!


The plugin writes some debug output, which can be found at data/cache/debug.log if debugging is activated.


If you need to revert to the original authentication scheme, you can do this by changing the file conf/local.php like this:

 $conf['authtype'] = 'authplain';

ToDo/Wish List

  • LinOTP should read the users from dokuwiki



Could be placed on an external page (e.g. plugin:pluginname:discussion) to have a distinction between user comments and author docs
