Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I am trying to upgrade my TWiki from Beta4 to Beta6, and to add the ActionTrackerPlugin from TWiki:Plugins.TWiki, where it says: "Untar and run the installer script".

In a plain Dakar Beta6, the TWiki web is writeable only for TWiki admins, which looks fine. However, ActionTrackerPlugin_installer.pl explicitly identifies himself as {DefaultUserLogin}, and subsequently fails:

AccessControlException: Access to CHANGE TWiki.ActionTrackerPlugin for TWikiGuest is denied. access not allowed on web

Ideologically I'd prefer to have a dedicated TWiki user for installation (if I have write access to the directories, I'm mightier than a simple TWiki admin anyway), but there isn't such a role.

Pragmatically I allowed write access to the TWiki web, ran the installer, and removed write access again.

There should be a correct solution as well?

I think setting the user to "TWikiAdminGroup" will solve this, but can't find the script in SVN to update it.

This doesn't just apply to ActionTracker, but to all plugins installed using the build contrib, so I'm changing the extension appropriately.

Steffen, the script in question is twikiplugins/BuildContrib/lib/TWiki/Contrib/BuildContrib/TEMPLATE_installer.pl. This is used as the template for all installers.


Thanks for hinting, CC - I put a new "AdminUserWikiName" value in TWiki.cfg and pointed and that instead. Set to TWikiAdminGroup by default.

Thanks for reporting this, Harald!

While at it, made the installer script a bit more talkative and allowed it to really upload files to pub.

SVN 8585.
