Woltlab Burning Board

Configuration for authMySQL Auth plugin to authenticate with Woltlab Burning Board, which let's do:

  • Only basic authentication
  • No user modification/adding. This assumes that all user/group accounts will be created and maintained through Woltlab Burning Board. Any number of user roles can also be created and used for ACL in DokuWiki.

The user role's “Administratoren” members will automatically become DokuWiki superusers with the settings below.

Tested on WBB version 3.1 and DokuWiki version 2009-12-25c “Lemming”.


Use the Config Manager or add it to the conf/local.protected.php to store the config protected.

The database prefix in this example is wcf1_ which needs to be replaced with your own.
